Gnome uninstallable

I am tracking testing, but had gnome installed from unstable. Something went kablooie the other day, and now I have a non-working gnome installation. Trying to install gnome (some packages are still on the system but unmanaged by dpkg, while others were erased by aptitude) I get lots of errors like the following:

   sudo aptitude install gnome Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree Reading extended state information Initializing package states... Done
   E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
   E: Unable to correct dependencies, some packages cannot be installed
   E: Unable to resolve some dependencies!
   Some packages had unmet dependencies.  This may mean that you have
   requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
   distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
   or been moved out of Incoming.

   The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gnome: Depends: gnome-desktop-environment (= 64) but it is not installable

Chasing dependencies, or installing from unstable, yields essentially the same results. How can I get things stabilized again?
