I have noticed something similar in Hardy.  If I issue "sudo aptitude
update" and "sudo aptitude safe-upgrade", aptitude updates the system.
(This is my prefered method.)  However, the package manager still
reports the same x number of packages not updated.  When I issue that
update, it then downloads the same x packages though they are in the
cache (and already installed) and upgrades them again.
