Yes I agree, but apt doesn't save any log's, and there is no /var/log/apt 
file. I know that aptitude, it you're using it, saves a log.

This is very puzzling, and have just posted to the synaptic mailing list about 
this hard to find history file.

I'll post back if I get a reply from anybody there.

This is all a bit academic, but it would be nice to find out where Synaptic's 
history file is saved on the harddrive.
