Are you sure that you don't want sudo any longer? Was it installed as a dependency?

I think list-bugs is just a troublesome non-necessity for single desktop users of Lenny and Sid. With aptitude (or apt-get auto-remove) you don't need to worry about it. If a bug affects your system, you can easily do a clean uninstall and reinstall an older version. None of the programs you have listed will seriously break your system. (I don't think they will anyway.) I'd go ahead and install them and see what happens.

Agreed. Not every bug is valid either - remember that the people who report them can be anyone. If their not familiar they could pick the wrong package or just have a strange setup

I like listbugs. It's easy enough to check if a bug report have validity if it has been replied to. And it *is* nice to know that there is filed a grave bug in say libc6 before blindly upgrading.
