[Aptitude-devel] Bug#814037: aptitude: Aptitude::Pkg-Display-Limit is ignored if Aptitude::UI::Flat-View-As-First-View is set to true

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.7.5-3


if I call either 'aptitude -o "Aptitude::Pkg-Display-Limit=~i" -o
"Aptitude::UI::Flat-View-As-First-View=true"' or 'aptitude -o
"Aptitude::UI::Flat-View-As-First-View=true" -o
"Aptitude::Pkg-Display-Limit=~i"' (i.e. order is not relevant), the
value of Aptitude::Pkg-Display-Limit is ignored and set to "!~v" which
is the default for flat views.

IMHO that default should be overridable on the command line.
