The above packages are probably marked as automatically installed for
some reason.  Did you bulk tag a pile of packages as automatically
installed when you started using aptitude?

You could run:
aptitude install checkinstall kapptemplate kbabel kbugbuster kcachegrind
 kdesdk-kfile-plugins kdesdk-misc kdesdk-scripts kompare kuiviewer poxml
 umbrello valgrind valgrind-calltree

Or you could manually tag those packages as /not/ being automatically
installed in the interface (with "m" I believe)

You probably also need to check that other packages that you want aren't
set as having been automatically installed too.
