Version: 0.5.4
Severity: normal

I'll admit I was seduced:

              Like  clean, autoclean clears out the local reposi­
              tory of retrieved package files. The difference  is
              that  it  only  removes 
          !    package  files that can no longer be downloaded, and are 
          !    largely useless.
              This allows  a cache to be maintained over a long period
              without it growing out of control.  The  configura­
              tion   option   APT::Clean-Installed  will  prevent
              installed packages from being erased if it  is  set

Some of the packages deleted in the session below are current
viable cache members that have no recent substitute.

In particular,

were improperly removed from the cache.
