Default banshee transition - or worse?

Hi, on my Lenny desktop box I have a problem installing banshee since
Apr 16th.

Here is the saga:
I used to install all my stuff with apt-get, I rarely use aptitude and I
am not used to it. I almost never used Synaptic just because I did not
see any sense.
Well I should have heard to my inner voice on that.
That day the notify-update-thingy could not resolve all dependencies.
In these cases I started apt-get and everything would be fine - but that
day I started up Synaptic to see what it would do.
It told me that banshee must be uninstalled to resolve all dependencies.
That would have been the time for me to quit but I didn't - I was
curious - and anyway who needs banshee :-P ? So I did it.

Since then
env LANG=en_US.UTF-8 apt-get install banshee
gives me this:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer
required:
gedit-common libbrlapi0.5 python-pyatspi gnome-mag gedit
libcolorblind0 dasher gnome-accessibility-themes libgnome-mag2
libgail-gnome-module gnome-orca python-brlapi gnome-system-tools eog
dasher-data gok libgnomevfs2-bin libgnome-speech7
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

The following extra packages will be installed:
freepats gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad libavahi1.0-cil libboo2.0-cil
libcdaudio1 libiptcdata0 libkarma0 libmms0
libmono-cairo2.0-cil libmono-sqlite2.0-cil libmono-zeroconf1.0-cil
libneon27-gnutls libnjb5 libsgutils1 libsoundtouch1c2
libsqlite0 libtagc0 libtaglib2.0-cil libwildmidi0 podsleuth sg3-utils

***************************** ***********

The following packages will be REMOVED:
alacarte fast-user-switch-applet glipper gnome-applets
gnome-control-center gnome-core gnome-desktop-environment gnome-panel
gnome-session gnome-settings-daemon gnome-terminal nautilus
nautilus-cd-burner

**************************** ************

Need to get 29.9MB/34.5MB of archives.
After this operation, 31.6MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

First I supposed this is a transition problem with banshee and stayed
calm but now I am not so sure anymore.
And if it's not I'm not sure where the error may be found.
Since this is lasting for a week now I just thought I might ask the
public.

I'm sorry if this is noise ;-)

What exactly is your question, then? I don't really see a problem in the
output you posted. If you don't agree with apt-get about which packages
should be removed, just install them at the same time you install the
package you want (and don't already have).

D'oh! After I edited my post several times it seems that I lost the question itself:

Proceeding with "apt-get install banshee" will essentially uninstall Gnome.
Just installing the about-to-be-removed packages will of course result in a broken package message like this:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gnome-settings-daemon: Conflicts: banshee (< 0.13.2+dfsg-7) but 0.13.2+dfsg-2 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

Question is: Is this due to Testing-transition problems with banshee or is it worse?

I got used to those problems and generally I stay calm but because of the specific situation (remember: used synaptic the first time) I became more nervous.
So I am asking this just to make sure nothing too bad happened.

And again: I am sorry if this is unnessesary noise... maybe I'm just too nervous...

Today I finally found this:

So I am not alone

Seems that I could sail round my problem by installing banshee/unstable.
I will consider it... maybe.
