Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic

When I select severals packages in synaptic, ask removal, if a warning appear for a specific package, it don't show which one... and I need to try all of them to know which one to keep.

the part in yellow, is the 2 packages I've selected

I've run into this too. The easiest way to reproduce this is to select all installed packages and pick "mark for removal". An endless stream of meaningless warning message boxes will pop up one after another. (It's probably better to only select a few, otherwise you'll probably end up x-kill-ing synaptic.

Confirming as I see this too in hardy. One way to reproduce this is to select bash and click remove.

Setting back to In Progress as this isn't yet committed on mainline (and I left some comments on the merge proposal which need to be fixed first).
