I was hoping that:

| aptitude search '~i!~Odebian'

was the command that I ran successfully as part of the upgrade from
Sarge to Etch and had forgotten.

If it is the same command, it is now behaving quite differently.  I
refrained from posting the output that it now produces because the
output is lengthy and I wanted to conserve bandwidth.  But here are the
first few lines of that output:

| i   a2ps                     - GNU a2ps - 'Anything to PostScript' conver
| i A abiword-common           - WYSIWYG word processor based on GTK2      
| i A abiword-gnome            - WYSIWYG word processor based on GTK2/GNOME
| i   abiword-help             - online help for AbiWord                   
| i   adduser                  - Add and remove users and groups           
| i   afio                     - archive file manipulation program         
| i A akregator                - RSS feed aggregator for KDE

| i   alsa-utils               - ALSA utilities

I hope that makes things clearer.

It is just a niggle.  Etch works like a charm!
