What about the particulary nasty bug, when you set packages to 'keep' in
the 'partial view' and then cycle again to 'partial view' and this
packages are still there ?
There was another nasty one which I have seen some time ago (repeatedly)
manifesting itself when I've used 'Install from Local Directory'. In the
'Category View' if I click on 'automake' and some other packges this would
cause a crash. I remember that I tried to debug it but not too hard (time
constraints)... From what I recall it appeared that the bug is caused by
the String constructor recieving NULL pointer. Not quite sure though. Back
then I had a large number of packges cached in the local download
directory. I'll try with the latest version and see if i can reproduce it.
