[Aptitude-devel] Bug#759769: aptitude: Installed Size diff reported wrong for packages larger 2GiB if installed

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.11-1
Severity: minor
Tags: lfs

When installing a package that will require more than two GiB on disk
if installed this change of required disk space is reported incorrectly.

To reproduce have a look at the linux-image-*-dbg packages that require
more than 2GiB on amd64 after installation. When installing such a package
aptitude will report something like "pi linux-image-*-dbg   -1,900M ..."
while the correct display would report +2300M instead.

Likewise uninstalling such a package will report something along the lines
of "id linux-image-*-dbg   +1,900M" where "-2,300M" would be correct.

Kind regards,
