>when using the escape code "%e" in aptitude --display-format (-F) it will always return an empty result. (%O seems to fail too)

If the version reported above is the correct one (please confirm), that
version doesn't accept neither %e nor %O (only some in the series 0.7.x

Additionally, only 0.7.6 will tell you when you are using escapes which
are unsupported (bug #813319).
