I tried editing /etc/apt/sources to include unstable sources (on my
Testing system, i.e. Etch) and did:
$> sudo apt-get -s install -t unstable k3b
and it was willing to do this by installing some additional kd3 packages
as well (all were, IIRC, from kde 3.5). I didn't proceed with this.
So, coming back to your suggestion, where do I go looking for older
version(s) of K3b? I was away for around 2 weeks after christmas, I
guess that is when I missed this oppertunity.
