I have tested this with apt and a few packages but every
time apt-get autoremove _packagename_ has found all packages which an
apt-get remove _packagename_; apt-get autoremove would find.

  apt-get autoremove don't find all packages

Status in “apt” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: apt

  I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 dev and apt 0.8.7ubuntu1. apt-get autoremove
  don't find all unused packages. For example if I install alsa-utils,
  linux-sound-base is installed as a needed package. If I try to
  autoremove alsa-utils, linux-sound-base is ignored. Only a second
  autoremove does remove linux-sound-base. I have made an example (it's
  in german because I don't know how to start apt in english but it
  should show the problem with the commands).
