Sorry Jordan, not anymore. I just fixed it.
I typically run an `aptitude full-upgrade` on two Squeeze machines I have at home. Two days ago wesnoth came down, and my desktop machine wanted to update wesnoth, but delete all of the campaigns without replacing them. I figured that the campaigns just hadn't come down yet and aborted the upgrade.
Then after reading AG's message I ssh'd home and tried it again. Aptitude wanted to do the same thing so I replied to the mailing list.
After sending my reply I was still curious so I did an `apt-cache policy wesnoth-trow` and could see the new version as a candidate. Then I checked and saw that the campaigns had been downloaded by cron-apt and were sitting in /var/cache/apt/archives.
So I tried an `apt-get dist-upgrade` and that updated the core wesnoth files AND the campaigns.
So there was some issue with aptitude not liking the campaigns, but apt-get resolved it.
I don't use the curses interface to aptitude, I just use it like apt-get with command line arguments so I'm 99.9% sure I didn't set a hold on the packages, etc. But it works now. :)
