This was (supposed to be) fixed in aptitude 0.4.11, according to the
NEWS file:

If you're running Etch and don't want to upgrade (because that would
involve upgrading apt, libc6 etc. as well), one possibility is to keep
your system up to date regularly, then the list of not upgraded packages
will be short (or even empty).
