This goes against recommended package management procedures in Debian. Mixing
two different distributions can have unpredictable consequences. Is there a
reason for not using the Backports distribution? Installing from backports
may not bring in as many new libraries, dependencies, and installs, but the
system will work with the existing versions. You should also look into the
documentation on "apt pinning" if you insist on mixing releases.
I am running 2.1.8 from lenny backports and it works well for me.
