Since I've been running "sid" and Ximian's Gnome packages, until I did
an "apt-get dist-upgrade" yesterday, I saw no problems. Then, I ran into
a similar problem as the original poster -- there was a debian package
newer than the ximian one and it caused a brief headache.
Why exactly shouldn't you mix the two ??
Won't ximian normally have newer packages than debian, and therefore
avoid a conflict ??
