0) I suspect "take a look at what breaks" is a debugging, or investigating type task, yes? (ie, there's no one place to look & see what's broken, right?)

1) Is it possible to investigate fairly easly your system to see what currently installed is from Dapper?  (Maybe some dpkg -l command, grepping for something indicative of dapper?  Could a dpkg -l be done, and then somehow subtract off the lines from a dpkg -l of a normal Breezy system?)

I certainly could apt-get the packages you mentioned in your last post.  But debugging failed package selections is not something that I'd want to attempt.  Especially if there is a fairly swift way of finding out from your system what the updated packages are. (& thank you again for your help. :) )
