I recommend not upgrading your system to sid anymore (duh ..) and put testing
in your sources.list. If everything is working for you there is no need to
downgrade is there? Woody is frozen so I don't think your sid packages will be
replaced by newer packages though ... But eventually you'll be running testing
when all packages have gotten upgraded.
