My system is sully updated, but I have so far experienced no lockups. 
Did have a problem with iptables earlier, but uninstalling the old 
version completely and then installing the update solved it for me.

You can roll back updates using Synaptic>History, selecting version from 
the package's properties and using the "force version" option from the menu.
