Does it get to successfully applied?

I've had a poke in the slim devices repository and the
libpath-class-perl package there has the same version as the one from
universe but is different which looks to be confusing apt. 

It looks like the version locking in synaptic is just using the
version. Pinning in apt can be more complicated, including where the
package comes from. 
'man apt_preferences'
