Bit of a mess, then. Perhaps you should check /etc/apt/apt.conf for a
line containing the key "Default-Release" and its value, that would pin
the distribution. Also, is there a /etc/apt/preferences file?

If you don't mind the lack of security updates in "testing", then
perhaps you could pin it down in apt.conf (via Default-Release), comment
out the unstable URLs in sources.list and run 'dselect update'.

The slew of packages from unstable already on the system will remain
until new versions enter testing.

Or, depending on your Linux/Unix skills and self-confidence, just go
with unstable.
