Usually I only use that combination when setting up a non-X machine
initially as with tiny servers based on Raspberry Pis.

It's possibly the first time I did this with an aptitude version
released after Jessie. So I can't tell when it started, except that it
didn't happen with Debian Jessie on armhf nor with Raspian Jessie. I'm
not sure about Raspbian Stretch, but I may have used aptitude (0.7.5)
there on the vt console once or twice, too. Can and will check,
