Angry Help rolling back dselect selections

A silly question for those of you that know about dselect, following an equally silly action.
I have deselected a number of already installed packages by mistake.

How can I get dselect back into its currently installed & uninstalled state, ie cancel any changes I have requested to be made but have not yet run the install stage on? The "Yes do as I say" prompt works!!

Go back into dselect -> select and use the "-" to un-select. Even if you went ahead with the process it would tell you that the packages are installed and it is going to ignore the selections.
