package name problem

I installed mondo 2.24-3ubuntu1 from the Ubuntu repo. Had a problem with 
it so I climbed on the mondo-devel list and was told 2.24=2.2.4 and that
the latest was 2.2.7 which I went ahead and installed. Looks like the 
ubuntu developers missed a decimal point. The problem is that the update 
manager thinks 2.24-3 is later than 2.2.7 (2.24>2.2) and plants the 
update symbol in the bottom panel. I see no way of removing it except
perhaps, globally which I don't want to do.

Short of getting the developers to rename the package, which I may 
lobby for, is there any way of getting rid of this annoyance?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
