 Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention.

Your observations are from the older release, Kindly test this in Karmic> Until someone confirms this in Karmic , it is not a papercut.

 A paper cut is a minor usability annoyance that an average user would encounter on his/her first day of using a new installation of Ubuntu 9.10.
 For further info about papercuts criteria , pls read > https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PaperCut
 Don't worry though, This bug has been marked as "incomplete" ONLY in the papercuts project.

I'm still seeing this problem in up to date Karmic. mac_v, is there a reason this doesn't qualify as a papercut?

Okay I have linked a branch which fixes the problem. Not only does it remember your selection, it also uses Synaptic's config so that the checkbox is consistent between both apps.

This bug was fixed in the package gdebi - 0.6.2ubuntu1

---------------
gdebi (0.6.2ubuntu1) maverick; urgency=low

  * merged from bzr trunk, this can be later synced with debian
    once debian has a newer version, nothing ubuntu specific
    in this anymore

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * debian/control:
    - depend on the latest python-apt to get the "dump()"
      method
  * GDebi/GDebi.py:
    - synaptics config is always stored under /root

  [ Andrew Higginson ]
  * GDebi/GDebi.py:
    - Read whether we autoclose from synaptic config
      file and write to it as well (LP: #376966)

  [ Michal Simunek ]
  * po/cs.po:
    - Update Czech translation (Closes: #590848).

  [ Luca Falavigna ]
  * GDebi/GDebiKDE.py:
    - Switch back to kdesudo, kdesu isn't available anymore both in
      Debian and Ubuntu (Closes: #591306).
  * GDebi/GDebi.py:
    - Adjust FetchProgressAdapter namespace, fix NameError exception
      trying to install packages which requires more dependencies
      (LP: #614690).
