Chris: What does your "/etc/apt/sources.list" look like? Do you have any
non-official sources in it? Do you have a mix of branches, and if so,
what's the order of them?
apt[itude] reads the first listings as the most preferred source, so
you've now got a mixed system, pulling a few things from testing which
are not in stable, but preferring stable for most packages. This is
probably a recipe for brokenness. If it were me, I'd go ahead and
upgrade to testing (or even unstable).
