I managed to downgrade my konqueror from "unstable" to "testing", because I
was also having crash problems.

You need to pin the "testing" packages to a priority of over 1000, in order
to allow downgrading.  Here are the "/etc/apt/preferences" settings I used:

    Package: *
    Pin: release a=testing
    Pin-Priority: 1777
    Package: *
    Pin: release a=unstable
    Pin-Priority: 333

Then I de-installed my KDE packages using "dpkg --force-all -r".  This
breaks a whole bunch of dependencies, and generates a bunch of warnings.

Finally, I re-installed KDE from "testing" using "apt-get -f install".
Seems to have worked.
