An existing thread? I'm afriad that, since I have only just joined the
list, I am unaware of current threads with the title ``libstdc++5
problem.'' Sorry.

Ok, I should have given an example:

nontrivial:/home/stuart# apt-get install gcc-3.2
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  binutils coreutils cpp-3.2 cramfsprogs dash gcc-3.2-base initrd-tools
  libacl1 libattr1 modconf modutils zlib1g zlib1g-dev 
The following packages will be REMOVED:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  coreutils cpp-3.2 dash gcc-3.2 gcc-3.2-base libacl1 libattr1 
7 packages upgraded, 7 newly installed, 1 to remove and 721  not upgraded.
Need to get 9315kB of archives. After unpacking 7081kB will be freed.

Now, am I right in assuming that apt will potentially mess stuff up? A
simulation run comes up with this:
