In the end I created another bug to track the latest of the issues:


I am closing this bug, specially because the merged ones are quite
whacky and without much useful information, some of the reports were
actually caused by other tools (aptdaemon) or claimed to be in the
search and then dismissed.

Since some of the problems have been addressed in the last few releases,
and new ones created (like the latest example in this bug report
resubmitted as #816229), the old information contained in these reports
is of not much use, and there are still many open bugs about the
auto-flags with procedures that are actually reproducible, so it's
better to focus on those.
