My test case was this:
Have an [exp] package installed. Setup wants to revert it to [curr]. Click
once, changing it to setup. Cycle round to "Partial" again. All the
binary-only packages are now showing in partial, but as Keep! Click twice on
any one of these (cycling it away and then back to Keep). Cycle round the
views again, back to Partial. Now the extra packages are not erroneously
My [exp] package was actually loaded from a second, local, setup.ini. I
never tested whether this mattered or not.
