Nope, this issue is due to your using the testing repository.  I'm sure
you would not have it with stable.

Usually if I hit a situation like that I just wait a week to upgrade
anything, usually the problem has been sorted out by then.

Semi OT but SP2 does seem to be really bad even for Microsoft.  A client
of mine reports that SP1 -> SP2 completely broke Firewire audio and
there's still no fix.
