Aptitude and apt-get curiosity.....

Trying to satisfy a curiosity.

I upgrade my Debian Wheezy system with aptitude and it upgrades all but
one application file.

Redo: "aptitude update" and it shows that file hangs around for
several days and doesn't get upgraded when I do aptitude
"safe-upgrade" after "aptitude update" each time day after day.

So I do apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and the file is upgraded.

Why does aptitude just ignore it again and again and apt-get upgrade it?

In case it helps this was the latest that aptitude wouldn't touch but
apt-get upgraded: librsvg2-bin

This has happened on a few occasions over time and I just wondered
about it?
