Done...  It seems like the ncurses based interface is buggy.  I could
successfully set vim-runtime in hold.  The bad response comes when
quiting aptitude, then the interface hangs and it nevers exit until a
Ctrl-C is applied, :(...

But it installs, and one can achieve the purposed tasks I believe,
:)...  Actually I tried aptitude full-upgrade, and the package I set
on hold was not tried to be updated, :)...

If there's another version you'd like me to try, then please let me
know, and I will as soon as I notice the message...
