apt-get installation on removal order



    Hello. I've tried the debian-user list with this question and I haven't
received an explanation, so I thought I'd try here. I hope I'm not intruding. 

    I tried a typical thing for me, and one of my favorite features of apt. I
tried removing a base package to remove an entire dependency tree of
packages. Normally it works great. This time, it's offering to install a whole
whack of new packages. 

    I'd love to know why. Why does a remove command justify installation of
any kind? I'll help in any way I can. 

    Thanks,
    Mike
