Selecting a meta package leaves out dependencies.

Bug Description

I was trying to put together a repository disc after I installed the Ubuntu base system using the server CD. I copied all debs from the ubuntu alternate CD to a folder so they were all located in the root of the folder. I then pointed APTonCD to the folder and selected the meta package "ubuntu-desktop". It selects many packages along with it as dependencies, but when the disc is tried with another base system, there are dependencies that are missing, and many of them.

I was trying to make a disc that contains all of the desktop environments on one disc, and all of them are meta-packages I believe. Is this a bug of APTonCD or is there a logical reason or workaround for this?
