I think the problem is not the the resolver (apt-get and aptitude should
get dependences about the same if not problem found, and therefore
"aptitude full-upgrade" should do the same as "apt-get dist-upgrade"
thats it, bring all packages up to date following the pinning system and
install and remove packaged when needed.
Im not sure (nor im sure how to check it if thats the case) but I think
it may have to do with the database of how packages where installed. If
you install some packages with aptitude and others with apt-get and then
remove a third one with aptitude again, MAYBE the auto and manual
installation flag in some packages goes crazy as they are handled in
separate db (AAFAIK)
my 2 cents...
