slackpkg wants to downgrade KDE

Hello, I've upgraded KDE to 4.12.3 using the ktown repository, and now when I try to update my system using slackpkg, it wants to downgrade KDE to 4.10.5. How do I prevent this?

edit- I resolved it by editing /etc/slackpkg/blacklist and adding [0-9]+alien. I hope this is the best way to fix this.
