Trying to remove samba on GG wants to remove Kubuntu-desktop

Well this is a bit weird. I don't use MS Windows, so don't need Samba, and 
being on dialup, Samba updates are not needed. So I open synaptic, and check 
remove samba-common. Now I'm told that kubuntu-desktop, and smbclient are 
going to be removed. Now I've no problems with smbclient being removed, but 
why the hell does removing samba, also want to remove my desktop.

On the face of it, it looks I've got to put up with samba being installed, 
unless I want to lose my desktop. 

Any suggestions folks?

Some workaround perhaps, where I can block updates for samba.

Thanks for any help on this annoying problem.
