update-notifier & update-manager don't respect held back status

This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-notifier (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-notifier
Binary package hint: update-manager

When I set a package on hold on aptitude, update notifier still reports the package as an update. When the update-manager is opened, the package is also listed as an update.

update-notifier 0.70.9
update-manager 1:0.87.30
Ubuntu 8.04.1 (hardy)

This is very frustrating indeed. Why don't update-manager and Synaptic use the same database as aptitude and dpkg for this?
