Depends: libaccess-bridge-java


Recommends: libaccess-bridge-java-jni

So technically there's no circular dependency, but unfortunately this 
doesn't help with removals. Maybe try with --no-install-recommends ?

I can't find a connection to openjdk-6-jre, however there seems to be a 
circular dependency between openjdk-6-jre-headless and 
openjdk-6-jre-lib, still present in sid.

There are people looking into issues like these, but they might be 
unavoidable in a distribution the size of Debian.
