easier fix (and you solve all the future issues like this)
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/apt/preferences
and level all to 500.
what you saw here is apt-pining working, one pkg (libcairo2) set with higher priority (700) and being installed even if you have a newer v. from another repo (but set with lower pin-priority-500)
since you are using sid, i think that getting rid of this is only going to help you.
