Again I agree but there were some anomalies that aptitude found, and
even after clearing the aptitude cache, removing the repository for KDE
3.5 from the sources.list and doing an update, I still couldn't install
kubuntu-desktop (I'm running Ubuntu upgraded to KDE with
kubuntu-desktop). I had to install other items to get kubuntu-desktop
up, but now I find my settings in Konqueror have been wiped out....

I like to use aptitude, because at one time Debian said it handled
dependencies better that apt-get or Synaptic (don't know if that's
still true, but it *feels* like it), but there was too much broken for
an easy return to KDE 3.4.3. It gave me a great deal of information,
but I still couldn't get the system the way it was.
