Umm, I forgot to issue the dist-upgrade command after setting up the pinning,
and that's why the new essential packages weren't installed.  However, running
``aptitude dist-upgrade`` doesn't install the new essential packages, while
``apt-get dist-upgrade`` does.  Do you think I should report this as a bug in
