dist-upgrade is usually better for this scenarios.

it is allowed, IIRC. the thing is that if an updated kde-i18n-$LANG
package is avilable, your dist-upgrade should pull in it too...

what I am trying to do first is *understand* why did you have such
problem, when it works for most people. can you think of any reasons
for which apt-get didn't upgrade kde-i18n-$LANG? (perhaps it was
caused by using upgrade instead of dist-upgrade, but I can't tell).
adding a Conflicts could be an option, but I think it's late in the
release cycle to try to do that. and, in any case, we really need to
check first if there indeed exists a problem.
