I upgraded a Woody box last week to Sarge's glibc/apt/dpkg/
openoffice.org/perl last week. The result was that Woody's mysql does
not work with Sarge's glibc. It complains about missing GLIBC_2.2
symbols. I've then also upgraded mysql and things were fine again.

The other thing that is likely to break for partial upgrades is stuff
using DB, see for example #196917 on spamassassin breakage when perl
is upgraded.
