Bug Description

Hi and thank you for the remarkable Aptitude.

I'm on the development version of Ubuntu and upgrade packages daily using aptitude.

Upon reviewing daily upgrades, I consistently discover that many packages which I am sure to have previously marked as automatically-installed, are now marked as manually installed.

What could be the cause of this, please?

Aptitude may be the cause of this. I'm not using any other package manager.

Here is a screen shot. In it, you can see several libraries, which I have previously marked as automatically installed.

And they are now marked manually installed.

@9d9, I don't thing that this a duplicate of that, because it is not only kernels.
