The visual UI tries to remember what you were doing last time and
restore the state of the program. Occasionally something will go wrong,
or it'll save a state that you didn't want it to save. It sounds like
that's what happened to you.
You can clear the state by running "aptitude keep-all" or choosing
"Cancel pending actions" from the Actions menu.
