OK. Might give it a try if we agree on when to do it.

Well, if sugar is plain broken as of the versions currently in lenny, 
I'd considered that either to be part of "absolute minimal" or a reason 
for total removal from lenny. As you might guess, I'd like the former 
solution much better. :)
BTW (OT): Do you know of any tool simplifying backporting of packages? 
I.e. fetching a source package from testing, installing the build 
dependencies (possibly recursively backporting after asking the user for 
agreement), building and installing the package.

Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately, I'm already allocating more time to 
this than I can afford with good conscience. But feel free to ask again 
in a year (should've finished my diploma thesis by then). :)
