All I did was press the "Reload", "Mark all upgrades" and "Apply"
buttons in Synaptic.


AH!!!  I see what happened:

I have virtualbox-ose-modules-generic installed, which just upgraded
its latest version depends on virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.24-13-generic
which in turn depends on linux-image-2.6.24-13-generic

I will attempt to revert some of the recent changes to see what might
have caused the problem.
