On Friday night I updated a stable box to a testing box. Afterwards:

What upgrade method did you use?

1. Lilo was promoted to the default boot loader

With a stable install (sarge) lilo should not be installed in the first
place, let alone upgraded.

I should also point out that stable installed exim, instead of exim4
so I had forzen messages for 8 weeks under mutt. This is under stable.

Sarge (stable) defaults to exim4 for your MTA.

These two things lead me to believe you have some kind-of hybrid or
partially updated woody system rather than sarge -> etch.

I think he may have accidentally skipped sarge entirely, trying a woody->etch transition. That may explain some of these problems.
