cron-apt has lost touch with reality
 
I've used aptitude and cron-apt together for a couple of years now. on an
AMD64x2 running sid. Lately, cron-apt prepares for upgrades that don't
make sense. For instance last night's run:

...
CRON-APT ACTION: 3-download
CRON-APT LINE: /usr/bin/apt-get dist-upgrade -d -y -o
APT::Get::Show-Upgraded=true

gnuchess? Why? Here's the state of these NEW packages:

This started about a week ago. Any idea how to bring cron-apt back to
earth? Its not fatal, aptitude still knows what to do on upgrades but
its an real annoyance and I'm downloading useless files.

thanks, stevem
