I suggest to hold emacs-snapshot when you don't like to update it:
- aptitude hold emacs-snapshot
- aptitude full-upgrade
and unhold when you fill in the need of an upgrade:
- aptitude unhold emacs-snapshot
- aptitude full-ugrade

If there are better solution I'm willing to know so keep me updated.
