Replacing running kernel


I wondered if anyone can help me fix things. I think I might have
misconfigured something.

I clearly remember getting big warnings and a _question_ that allows
me to break off when installing a kernel that replaces the currently
running version. But nowadays when I upgrade packages (interactively
from aptitude), it only _tells_ me that "going to replace running
kernel, reboot soon". I want it to ask so I can say no.

Specifically, it says before showing the "Bwahaha, I replaced your
kernel, you need to reboot" dialog:

Preparing to replace linux-image-2.6.18-3-amd64 2.6.18-7 (using .../linux-image-2.6.18-3-amd64_2.6.18-8_amd64.deb) ...
The directory /lib/modules/2.6.18-3-amd64 still exists. Continuing as directed.

Where I can configure aptitude or something to not direct it to just
