When browsing through Synaptic custom filters,

the right-hand side didn't reflect the selection on the left.

When i clicked OK, the filter actually changed to what was
displayed, but that was completely wrong!

After selecting a few of them to figure out if it will become
sane again, the program crashed.

Also, when selecting the "Set Internal Option", the program
always crashes.

This is a very concerning behavior of a program like a
package manager. Something's horribly wrong here.

Doing this seems to cure various synaptic woes ...for me It's worth a shot and the worst thing that can happen is that you will have a nice permanent search bar enabled. Let us know if this helps. Ric
