Re: emdebian-tools unintentionally upgraded my system from "testing" to "unstable"!

I don't think that can be the whole story. Whilst emdebian adds a line
which by default references _emdebian.org_ unstable, that can have no
effect on the version of _debian_ repository you are using.
Repositories' suites are independent of each other. 

Using packages from emdebian can encourage your system to use debian
unstable packages (due to toolchain dependencies) _if_ the unstable
repository is already listed in your sources list. Was it?

But if it is there then your system will move on to unstable anyway
unless you specify an apt prefence to hold it back anyway.

So I am not convinced that emdebian-tools use of 'unstable' as its
default toolchain repository is the cause of your problems with wine.

I do agree that it would be nice if emdebia-tools added testing on
testing boxes and unstable on unstable boxes but that requires the
emdebian repositories to be properly in sync with testing, which they
are not yet (quite).
