Unfortunately, I cannot duplicate this on my system.  I have the 
circular dependency problem 
   cupsys depends on libcupsys2 >=1.1.13-1
   libcupsys2 conflicts with libcupsys2-gnutls10
   cupsys depends on libcupsys2-gnutls10
with a few complications with kdelibs4 and kdelibs3

I have spent hours now trying to escape from this without success.  
The versions available don't work in any combination. Even removing 
the whole of kde doesn't seem to unknot the cupsys dependencies, and 
anyway that would deprive me of several apps I use. Evidently, to 
step back to the situation that was there previously, I would need to 
do subtle things that are beyond my comprehension at the moment 
with /etc/apt/apt.conf and /etc/apt/preferences and so on.  

I'll have to wait it out.  Let this be a[-nother] warning to those 
with working Knoppix based installations tracking testing not to get 
too adventurous and leap into unstable without good reason - and 
another computer to fall back on.
