Clues above. You need neither red-carpet nor Ximian's packages. If
they don't provide Woody packages, then you certainly want to use
Debian's packages. The problem is likely caused by mismatched packages
(libzvt and gnome-terminal). I'd guess you're pulling one package from
Debian and the other from Ximian's *Potato* repository, and running into
the mismatched symbol. Hard to say which package is at fault, but
there's obviously a depends/conflicts problem.
I gave up trying to use Ximian's packages a long time ago as there was
always a race between Ximian's and Debian's packages, causing no end
of excessive downloads, conflicts and irritation. Ximian is best used
with "stable" only, if at all, AFAICT.
