I'm curious, why not replace these two with

aptitude -F '%p' search '~i!~M' > packagesNG_not_autoinstalled

Auto-installed packages are really not important (at least for me) and 
they might change from one version to the other of some package. Let 
apt/aptitude figure out what additional packages need to be installed, 
that's what they were created for.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
