What this means is: Try to use your system as you normally would, and make
a note of anything that does not behave the way it should.

The easiest method that I've found for this is to temporarily disable the
dapper line in sources.list, and take a look at what appears in synaptic's
"local or obsolete" packages, but this is not very reliable because
synaptic relies on /etc/apt/preferences being used in a manner opposite to
what I'm doing. There is very likely a much easier method, but I know not
what it may be.

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. :) )

That is why i suggested starting out with only the kernel and udev.
