[Aptitude-devel] Bug#661452: md5sum mismatch for Packages.bz2 is silently ignored

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.4-1.2

It seems that "aptitude update" silently ignores a md5sum
mismatch for the Packages.bz2 file. Sample test case (hurry,
or it is fixed):

deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian squeeze contrib

"apt-get update" shows a warning, as expected:

W: Failed to fetch bzip2:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/download.virtualbox.org_virtualbox_debian_dists_squeeze_contrib_binary-amd64_Packages  Hash Sum mismatch
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
