i wrote the first email about ximian (that was helix) packages being
binary incompatible with debian ones about 2 months ago. they are
still incompatible. while talking about evolution ximian debs segfaulting
on a "vanilla" debian sid, ettore perazzoli told me that (being evolution
an in-progress work <g>), ximian *does not* guarantee it working on anything
else than ximian gnome.

obviously, replacing every single package that has a dependency on
gtk with its ximian counterpart, results in a stable system. but i
definitely *don't* want to install ximian gnome, just some packages,
like evolution or red-carpet. and a mixed ximian/debian system is...
well... can i say unstable? on the other hand, like ettore said some
time ago "hey, we want the people run *our* version of gnome, isn't
