Richard, please remember to obey the code of conduct while on this list.
If you did not add debian sid repositories to your system (including
files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/), and another package did, then
perhaps you should be a little more careful about the packages you're
installing, and what else they may be modifying.
Either way, with using such packages, there's certainly no way anyone
here is about to offer support for your system, nor try to reproduce any
bugs that you may encounter, as there's just too much else that could
I can't see how this thread is going anywhere productive.
