I tried this once with a testing system, I wanted to downgrade to
stable. I was left with a horribly broken system, so it was far easier
to reinstall woody completely. It seems that Debian does not support
downgrading a whole distribution very well (which is no criticism or
wish, just a fact that one ought to know...)

Did you already try this successfully?

Thanks and have a nice day!
