_Someone_ has to find out. If you use unstable, you agree to help discover bugs in new
packages. Use testing if you don't want to do that. Btw: old packages are stored in /var/apt/
archives, you can easily restore an old version.
Using unstable? You are asking for trouble. Which is a good thing, someone else won't have the
problem if you discover _and_ fix or report it. Using full unstable on a remote/production box is
just irresponsible (done that too many times). You can mix stable and unstable packages, no
need to run ssh from unstable.
