Run aptitude with "-D" to get a bit more information about dependencies.
Even better, use the glorious "aptitude why(-not)" command:

$ aptitude why mono-runtime
i   xwine           Depends  libgnomeui32 (>= 1.4.2-3)
i A libgnomeui32    Depends  gnome-libs-data (= 1.4.2-37)
i A gnome-libs-data Depends  gnome-bin
i A gnome-bin       Suggests gnome-core
p   gnome-core      Depends  gnome-applets (>= 2.20.0)
p   gnome-applets   Suggests tomboy
p   tomboy          Depends  mono-runtime (>=

It seems that tomboy would be to blame on my system. You result may be
different, of course.

Why not? The unresolved dependencies are only recommendations and gamin
largely (or even completely?) replaces fam, AFAIK.
