What I have done in such cases is to use 'dpkg --purge <packagename>'
and then installed the older version, but that assumes that you have the old
packages. I would download them from the Debian ftp site and then install
them, after removing the unstable version with --purge. Before you do that,
copy a version of your wine.conf because you will need that.
