catastrophe - but how? Aptitude goes mad
# aptitude install libreoffice-grammarcheck-en-gb
and aptitude just carried on without asking as is correct when there
is only one package; but it proceeded to uninstall my entire desktop
environment, hundreds of packages. I couldn't believe it and used the
bash history to confirm that that was ALL I had typed. Moreover, it
wouldn't respond to control-C.

And it isn't even my computer.
