It is where you get the other GNOME stuff from. There you also find
the windowmaker version you should use.
You obviously have a line in sources.list pointing to a source with a
more recent libesd0 (and other things I suppose). Comment this line
and run apt-get update. Maybe you can also install a newer esound
package, but this may lead to even more downloads, if you have to
update packages that need some specific version of esound.
Beware, GNOME in unstable is in a somewhat broken state! If you start
gnome-name-server in .xsession, it should work again though.
