Peter, please note that this is off-topic for this list. This is a list for 
the mantainers of kde packages, not for user questions. Next time, please ask 
in debian-user, or debian-kde. ;-)

No! This is not true. Both apt-get and aptitude are frontends to libapt. See 
'apt-cache depends apt', and 'apt-cache depends aptitude'.

Yes, that's the problem. If you install kdegraphics, aptitude remembers that 
this package is installed manually, and installs all dependencies as 
installed automatically, so if you remove kdegraphics, aptitude removes all 
packages without reverse dependencies, if the user doesn't install them 

Solution: don't install kdegraphics if you don't want all the packages that 
kdegraphics provides, install the ones you will need.
