Successful install of nautilus-dropbox from Ubuntu deb leaves dependency error

Hello, all:

I installed the amd54 Ubuntu deb of nautilus-dropbox.  In order to do
that, I had to override a dependency problem:

dpkg --force-depends-version -i nautilus-dropbox_0.6.3_amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 230573 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace nautilus-dropbox 0.6.3 (using
nautilus-dropbox_0.6.3_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement nautilus-dropbox ...
dpkg: nautilus-dropbox: dependency problems, but configuring anyway as
you requested:
 nautilus-dropbox depends on libnautilus-extension1 (>= 1:2.22.2); however:
  Version of libnautilus-extension1 on system is 2.30.1-1.
Setting up nautilus-dropbox (0.6.3) ...

Evidently the lib-nautilus package in testing is actually OK, being
later than the one expected, which is why I felt confident in forcing
the install.  And the application installed and works flawlessly.  But
now aptitude complains of a dependency error and recommends removing
nautilus-dropbox.  I shall, of course, ignore the recommendation, but
is there any way to tell aptitude that all is actually well?
