I have those packages updated and didn't see any horrible breaks yet.

You might try to find out installable and working grome packages here. 
Keep adding dated lines to sources.list like that sample one:

deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2004/03/19/debian unstable \
main contrib non-free

(this is snapshot of unstable for 19 March 2004) ... untill you're happy with 
the output of 'apt-get install gnome -s'

I guess you should start from:

pub 4096R/0E4BD0AB  2003-03-18  <keyserver.bu.edu ; pgp.mit.edu>
fingerprint 1AE7 7C66 0A26 5BFF DF22 5D55 1C57 0C89 0E4B D0AB
