Package: libldb1
Version: 2:1.1.21-1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

Dear Maintainer,

Hi.. I just completed running "apt-get update" followed by "apt-show-versions -u" to find that 3 packages needed upgraded: hostapd, libldb1, and wpasupplicant. While upgrading those, I received the error message that xine-ui was going to be removed by that upgrade.

Thankfully the upgrade list was short this morning so a quick one by one test showed libldb1 is the package trying to remove THE video and other media file player I hand chose for my debootstrap'd Debian here. The expected outcome is, of course, to have all handchosen packages remain in place after all current upgrades have been installed.

While writing up this bug report, I simultaneously installed the other 2 packages as a test. SOMETIMES that corrects this very type of bug. It's been my accidental discovery that occasionally the order of one package installation before all others plays a part in stopping a second package from removing a third *seemingly* unrelated package. That path unfortunately didn't help this time so I have no suggested temporary workaround for anyone likewise affected. If I stumble on anything, I'll share here.

The related "apt-get install" advisement that I'm receiving is:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  libsmbclient libxine2 libxine2-misc-plugins libxine2-plugins samba-libs xine-ui
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 6 to remove and 2 not upgraded.
Need to get 111 kB of archives.
After this operation, 24.1 MB disk space will be freed.

For right now, this is all I have. Thank you so much for the work you do!
