I get stable, testing, and unstable sources now. You need a large
cache to do that. I will go to stable also, but in addition to the
advice above, you should put put -t (stable or sarge) in your command
whenever you upgrade. You may want to go to testing again when stable
gets old, and downloading all those sources helps you keep up, which
is always an issue. "-t" is for target:
# apt-get -t stable dist-upgrade
