update-manager's "partial upgrade" dialog sometimes shows up with auto-update

My current theory is that if update-manager and auto-update are both doing stuff at the same time, update-manager gets confused and throws a fit. This is not a serious issue, since even if the user clicks "Partial Upgrade", presumably it will either fail (because it can't lock the apt cache) or will do nothing, because auto-update will have taken care of it. Still, it's annoying and should go away.

So it turns out this is because of inotify watches in various directories that get triggered by "apt-get update" in the auto-updater. I think we're going to decide we don't care.
