There's a bug in the function `pui-install-selected-packages'. Wrong
arguments are given to `package-get'. The following patch fixes
that. It adds also some usefull comments to the variable
`pui-package-install-dest-dir'. In my mind this variable should have a
usefull default, even if you've no packages installed.

There's a bug in isearch. If you search with C-s in a buffer with the
`fundamental-mode' and exit the search by hitting C-a, C-b or
something similar, the isearch highlighting won't be gone. In these
situations, the isearch command seems to be in a mysterious state.
The vm toolbar (it's on the left side of my frame) will be broken
(partly or total invisible), if you use bbdb and convert an
old bbdb database to version 3 during the loading of vm.
Installed sound packages are shown as uninstalled in the package list
produced by `pui-list-packages'. May be, that this is caused by the
fact, that the sound packages have no lisp files and therefore no
5. Bug (Minor):
The command `pui-list-packages' won't work, if you've no internet
access (no access to a package source directory). In my mind it should
display the list of installed packages and/or a hint, that an update
isn't possible, because there's no access to a package source directory.
I've got the following message in the xterm, where I've started the
Comparison between integer and character is constant nil (50 and ?m)
[ispell-command-loop, byte-code, <compiled-function of unknown origin>,
I'm sorry, but I don't know how to reproduce this message.
