Thanks for your bugreport.

What distribution do you use? What version of synaptic? What steps are exactly required to reproduce the problem?

Thanks,
Michael

I am having weird behavior when I try and do an operation that synaptic tries to do, and the does not register the change in the gui. If I continue to make changes without "unmarking all" and then hit apply I get in the summary popup a listing for "NOT AUTHENTICATED" along with the other changes, when I open up the list it appears to have a bunch of blank items (I can only assume each blank line represents a failed operation). When I try to apply the changes I get the errors:

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
E: Unable to lock the download directory

Clicking ok refreshes everything and it will work again so long as I don't try and operations that synaptic can't perform. This is the case for downgrading. Unfortunately, after a refresh most changes are remembered, except downgrades.
