So I am getting the results because a single installed version belongs

little confused about ?narrows.
To illustrate suppose I want to search for package where a single
version matches "~A^unstable$", "A^stable$" and "~i". A search
where we expect no results. Yet:
Why do you expect no results? The three examples you posted below
look to me like they ought to be returned by that search.
aptitude search '~S ~A^unstable$ ~S A^stable$ ~i'
Does this do a search for installed versions from stable and then
narrows the search to versions from unstable? Or does it do a search
for installed versions from stable *implicitly widens the match* and
then searches for versions from unstable?
