[maemo-users] Download of 10MB after internet connection

This behaviour is really annoying to me since I have 30 MB/month free 
data. If about 20 MB of that get eaten by some apt-worker process 
updating the db from time to time its fairly useless to me.

Practically disabling auto update checking isn't _the_ fix since I have 
WLAN available most of the time but don't want to waste 3G traffic just 
because something decides that it's time for updates now. Isn't there a 
network-aware solution possible?
