gnome-desktop-environment directly depends on this package, so if you
include that package, gnome-system-tools will be installed even though
you have pinned it. Use apt-rdepends -r to discover reverse
dependencies of a package that you want to exclude and then see if any
of the reverse dependencies are in your binary.packages.
Thank you for your reply. I forgot to say that I'm building a lightweight LXDE LiveCD, so I don't install gnome or gnome-desktop-environment.
gnome-system-tools includes many small applications, I just want to install 2 of them, they are graphical applications to manage users/groups and date/time. My machine has a minimal LXDE dekstop too, I installed these 2 applications successfully with "--without-recommends" option.
