It is "Packet->Version sperren" if you would like to know... :-)

I did this and it works for synaptic. If I tellt it to mark all updates it 
does not mark kile. My problem is, that calling atp-get upgrade in the shell 
kile still is added to the updates. Is there any way to make the Lock 
available to apt?
