Won't matter in the slighest (apt-get always installs the latest version
number available). Just leave all the flavours in.
You clearly have the latest version installed. Perhaps you also have
dpkg -l xfree*
ii xfree86-common 4.1.0-8 X Window System (XFree86) infrastructure
I only have the latest version installed. If you have more you could
remove (and/or purge) them:
apt-get remove --purge <package name>
NB: Purging removes that package's configuration files.
If you can't boot into X any more you'll know for sure that KDE was
running 3.3.6-11 :-)
If so it might help fully reinstalling (a) or reconfiguring (b) the
(a) apt-get remove --purge <package name>
apt-get install <package name>
or (b) dpkg-reconfigure <package name>
dpkg-reconfigure reconfigures packages after they have
already been installed. Pass it the names of a package or
packages to reconfigure.
This has the same effect as re-installing the package,
