Bug Description

Hi

Since I've created a/etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch file with:
    foreign-architecture i386
per https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-announce/2011-August/000886.html and ran apt-get update, I'm seeing thousands of new packages and pressing "forget" will remove them from the UI, but they reappear when I restart aptitude.

It seems aptitude's new packages tracking is confused by the multiple architectures being available.

Cheers,
