[Aptitude-devel] Bug#665212: aptitude: Forgets hold states if packages from multiple archs are installed

Axel Beckert abe at debian.org

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.5-1
Severity: normal
User: debian-dpkg at lists.debian.org
Usertags: multiarch

Putting an upgradeable package on hold, quitting aptitude with "q" and
starting it again lets the hold state vanish. This happens since I added
a second architecture to the system.

This is likely related to http://bugs.debian.org/661744 (aptitude
forbid-version doesn't work in multiarch setup) if not the same issue at
all. (Can't tell though, so making a new bug report. Feel free to merge
it into #661744. :-)
