Exactly, if a package selected by rpmsrate has a dependency that is not
available (for example "skipped"), this package is unselected as well as
a lot more packages selected by rpmsrate.

This is likely a bug in the DrakX package selection code.

Thierry, maybe you have some ideas about this issue?
Do you want logs to show the issue?

We would be very happy not to have to specify the leaves in the dep
chain if we can skip only one dependency.
