Thanks for your bugreport.

I uploaded a new apt/synaptic today, please tell me if that fixes the problem
(should be available tomorrow) and close the bug if it does :)

Thanks,

Ok, with the C++ transition I have a seg fault at boot, and reinstalling
synaptic yeilded this:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  libsigc++-1.2-5c102
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libsigc++-1.2-5

It worked after I did this, but is this correct?

Yes, that's precisely the effect of the C++ transition, marking library package
names when they are transitioned. "c102" was the marker of the previous transition.
