You can probably still find older versions of the package in
/var/cache/apt/archives/. Pick the one that worked and install it with
"sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/<name-of-the-deb-file>".
If you cannot find the right version locally then it should be possible
to download it from http://snapshot.debian.net/.
Furthermore, if you are using Unstable you can add the Testing branch to
your /etc/apt/sources.list. That allows you to apt-get the Testing
version of a package if such a problem should come up again.
