Thanks for the reply. However, I do believe this is still a bug in the
dependency specification, since if the hdf5-tools
 package depends on the *latest* version of the libhdf5-1.8 package,
then it should explicitly do so, to prevent installation
 when the correct version cannot be installed because e.g. it is being
held back automatically by some other package
(paraview in my case).
