I created the attached patch, similar to Josh's but moving the cache
if exists.  I am fine with integrating Josh's patch as well.

The reason for this new stab with the modified patch is because I
think that somehow it's important to remove the litter and not leave
~/.aptitude/cache behind.

I think that this file is small enough and loosing its contents
unimportant enough that perhaps this is not needed (and the
paraphernalia to achieve this is a bit ugly, and probably not
foolproof).  But in that case perhaps we should remove instead of

Anyway, I think that it would be nice to fix this.  Thanks Josh for
bringing this to our attention and providing the patch.
