I find dselect useful in these situations. During package selection, you
can hold a given package. If at a later time you want to unhold it,
well, choose the unhold option.
I'm using testing:
$ dpkg -l binutils
ii binutils 188.8.131.52.4-0.1 The GNU assembler, linker ...
and bug #188900 seems fixed.
