Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic

This is an easy bug to replicate. In any section, select a few items, then resort the list (if it's sorted by name, sort by description, or installed version). The *positions* of the current selections in the list will be retained, which is incorrect behavior. The actual packages currently selected should be retained; their positions in the list will almost certainly change.

Confirmed in lucid.

Since this bug has enough information provided for a developer to begin work, I'm going to mark it as confirmed and let them handle it from here. Thanks for taking the time to make Ubuntu better!
