How did you bring in the packages from unstable?  I'd recommend you have
both testing and unstable lines in your sources.list and use an
/etc/apt/apt.conf containing 'APT::Default-Release "testing";' and then
use "apt-get -t unstable install libvtk4"

That's probably the most newbie-friendly way to mix distros and not hose
your system.

In the meantime, if your system is already hosed, see if you can
downgrade some packages using old debs from /var/cache/apt/archives

good times,
