Hi Stuart,

This was about a problem upgrading from lenny to squeeze and the release

Thanks for reporting that, and it was fixed already there at the time.

About the other issue, yes, aptitude eventually reaches the right
solution, but the first option is very often a bad one, suggesting to
remove or hold packages rather than upgrading.

I am merging it with one of the bugs open related to this.
