When I tried to update spamassassin recently, I received complaints that 
the old spamassassin-tools needed the old spamassassin (dependency).

I knew what to do.  I removed tools.  Hah.  That worked.  I was able to 
update spamassassin.

Then, I figured, I'd put spamassassin-tools back.

Damn, dead end.  Any suggestions!
