Package: libasound2-plugins
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I'm running an amd64 wheezy system, with jackd1 and associated packages
installed. When I install libasound2-plugins:i386 using aptitude,
instead of installing the appropriate i386 jackd1 library package
(libjack0:i386), it decides to instead remove jackd1, install jackd2,
and install the i386 jackd2 library package (libjack-jackd2-0:i386).

libasound2-plugins has a dependency on either libjack-jackd2-0 or
libjack-0.116; the latter is a virtual package representing the jackd1
libraries, which libjack0 does provide. Could this virtual dependency
be the reason why aptitude decides that it's easier to replace jackd1
with jackd2 instead of just installing libjack0:i386?

Manually installing libjack0:i386 before instalilng
libasound2-plugins:i386 does work as expected.
