Bug#606930: apt CDROM method fails if more than one package is required from a CDROM

Package: apt
Version: 0.8.8
Severity: important

Following the draft release notes for Squeeze, I veirifed that I had a
working mount for /dev/cdrom at /cdrom, and added a CDROM using
"apt-cdrom add".

After upgrading successfully to squeeze, I attempted to install a package from
the CDROM which had dependencies also on the same CDROM; apt-get reported that
all but one of the packages required from the CDROM was not found; after 
apt-get exited, the CDROM was mounted at /media/apt.

By trial and error, it is apparent that only the first package that
apt-get looked for on the CDROM was ever "found"; strace (attached) shows 
that apt-get mounts the CDROM at /media/apt and looks there for the first
package, but any subsequent packages are searched for under '/cdrom',
which is not mounted and so the packages are not found.

Changing the mountpoint in /etc/fstab to '/media/apt' does not help; the only
way I can find to install multiple packages from the same CDROM in a single
apt-get operation is to replace the /cdrom mountpoint with a symbolic link
to /media/apt.
