The only concrete example I have is X. I didn't think to write down the
packages. No, I don't use third-party repos, and I don't mix packages
from "unstable" or anything else. I don't even install .deb files from
third parties. My packages are "pristine" Ubuntu. Anything that isn't
from the Ubuntu archive goes into /opt/ or (in the case of Perl modules)

I'll look into aptitude. I hadn't heard about it before this weekend.

Well, X is a concrete example. I'll keep an eye out when I upgrade to
Dapper and write down what packages give me problems. I'll also get a
chance to test upgrading through ssh a couple of times. I have two
Ubuntu computers in front of me, so I can ssh from one to the other and
test that upgrade method.
