Aptitude tries to replace backport kernel with older version

I have replaced the stock etch kernel with 2.6.26-bpo.1-686 by adding backports to my sources.list and the following to /etc/apt/preferences:

Package: linux-image-2.6-486
Pin relase a=etch-backports
Pin-Priority: 999

If I run aptitude and press "G" I get prompted to downgrade my kernel to version linux-image-2.6.18-4-686.  Obviously I don't want this to happen.

I wish to resolve this before upgrading to Lenny.  What is the correct way of doing this?
