  That shouldn't happen now: the dependency resolver should refuse to
break holds unless you set Aptitude::ProblemResolver::Allow-Break-Holds
to true (it defaults to false).  There's one exception I know of, which
is that the greedy apt resolver will happily break holds (see #470035),
but that doesn't even apply in the case of safe-upgrade.  I would be
interested in adding "-o Aptitude::CmdLine::Resolver-Debug=true" to the
command line and seeing what you get.
