I am also running Sarge with Ralf's stable KDE 3.1.  I did the apt-get update, 
apt-get -u upgrade combo, and libpng3 was held back.  My next step, though, 
was to do this:

apt-get -s install libpng3

This indicated that the reason libpng3 was held back was that it depends on 
libpng12, which is a new package.  I went ahead and did

apt-get install libpng3

And got libpng3 and libpng12.  Things seem to work fine still.  I don't know 
about those packages getting removed.  Maybe some KDE 3 stuff from sid made 
it to sarge?
