    Mmm yes you are correct.

    Once again I was a bit too fast to ask questions instead of finding out for
    myself. Turns out I had commented the testing sources in sources.list and
    thus it found the same version for stable as for testing. Stupid stupid, it
    works now, thank you for pointing out my stupid mistake hehe.

    But I still have a question. Is there actually a safe way to downgrade a
    package (like say perl) without losing so many packages that depend on
    perl ?? Makes me want to think 3 times instead of the usual 2 before
    upgrading important packages ...
