hi len,

firstly i want to thank you for your initiative to test!  that's
bloody amazing, mate :)

i do not know if this specifically addresses the problem you are
having but i am aware of a library that is in a transitional stage
that is probably affecting ubuntu studio at some level.  the package
is ia32-lib and i believe it is changing how it is built regarding
multi-arch, although there is a good chance that i do not fully
understand it completely.

for example, there is an automated email from colin watson that shows...
ubuntustudio-meta 0.90 produces uninstallable binaries:
 * ubuntustudio-desktop (amd64 i386)
 * ubuntustudio-font-meta (amd64 i386)
 * ubuntustudio-graphics (amd64 i386)

so at this time it would appear that the daily images are indeed uninstallable.

the ia32-lib issue is a pervasive problem but i would expect there is
a comprehensive approach to solving it.

checking the email list for a message from colin watson is an easy way
to verify if any uninstallable packages have been built and to gauge
their severity.

i hope everyone finds this information useful, but please do not
hesitate to ask further questions.
