Have you tried to lock/hold it's current version ( http://ubuntulinuxtipstricks.blogspot.com/2007/07/tip-lock-versions.html ) ?

Synaptic Package Manager has a feature where you can prevent a package from being upgraded.

Look for Package | Lock Version after selecting the package you do not want updated.
