[Aptitude-devel] Bug#787663: aptitude forgets/clears manually set auto-installed-flags in several situations

Control: reopen -1


I just tried that with:
# aptitude --version
aptitude 0.7.6
Compiler: g++ 5.3.1 20160220
Compiled against:
  apt version 5.0.0
  NCurses version 6.0
  libsigc++ version: 2.6.2
  Gtk+ support disabled.
  Qt support disabled.

Current library versions:
  NCurses version: ncurses 6.0.20160213
  cwidget version: 0.5.17
  Apt version: 5.0.0

... and it still seems to happen.

I.e. I've upgraded kerberos, of which I've had e.g. krb5-k5tls marked
auto, though nothing depended/recommended/etc. it.

I've aborted at apt-listchanges, and then the auto flag was cleared.
