A recent update to the kernel in my Gutsy laptop, from 2.6.22-14.21 to
2.6.22-15.54, prompted by Update Manager has caused VMware to stop working.

This is likely because the vmware modules have not yet been updated from
2.6.22-14 to 2.6.22-15. I've lodged a bug about this:

My question is this:

    * How is it possible that this update was installed at all? Isn't
      this exact issue the reason we have dependencies at all?
