What I did and it is probably the hard way to do it is find all the 
packages from KDE I had installed and made myself a script that 
simulated the upgrade then once everything was upgrading to my 
satisfaction I went to the command line removed the -s in the install 
line and let it upgrade.

I have attached the script you will have to search and replace most of 
the =4:3.4.0-0pre1 on the end of the package names with =4:3.4.1-1 and 
of course get your packages installed (COLUMNS=125 dpkg -l | grep 3.3.
[1234]) to add into the file. Use apt-cache policy to figure out the 
version number = that you need to put on the end of the package names 
you will have to add to the file for your install and eventually you 
should get it to the point where everything will upgrade with exactly 
the packages you need to get it done without any of the packages from 

Debian the choice of a GNU generation.
