aptitude: behaving strangely


Hi all,
First, this is not about the Lenny->Squeeze transition. My system has successfully morphed from Lenny to Squeeze with no traumas. I am running a 2.6.26-1-686 kernel on Debian testing. I have aptitude version 0.4.11.11-1~lenny1 of aptitude installed and yes, it's still called "lenny". For the past few days running
Code:
sudo aptitude safe-ugrade
produces the rather strange output shown below.
Code:
open: 95; closed: 2379; defer: 3170; conflict: 67                              oResolving dependencies...

open: 70; closed: 3771; defer: 5163; conflict: 68
This carries on for a while and eventually ends up like this:
Code:
open: 31; closed: 9373; defer: 12121; conflict: 73                             oResolving dependencies...
open: 31; closed: 14384; defer: 18285; conflict: 74                            oThe resolver timed out after producing a solution; some possible upgrades might not be performed.
I normally use wajig to preform routine update && upgrade functions and wajig still behaves quite normally. Has anyone experienced this strange aptitude behaviour and give me a clue about what (if anything) ails it?
Cheers,
jdk

What is in your sources list? Can you show the output of these two commands, please:
Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
aptitude update
