Bug#45787: dpkg -i ignores -E for packages on hold

Package: dpkg

When a package is installed, and later marked "on hold" using dselect,
then running "dpkg -iE" on the last installed .deb tells "Selecting
previously deselected package", and reinstalls it despite -E.

I'm guess dpkg may be right when selecting the package again (although
the other way -not doing it- could be advocated), but it should
definitely not override -E.
