OK Ryan, Dmitri is right about checking for these security wholes.  You will
just have to downgrade xlibs to 4.1.0-17 and any packages that depend on it. 
Hopefully the Radeon's driver will not be affected.  The line for your
/etc/apt/sources.list is below:

deb http://people.debian.org/~branden/sid/i386/

I just checked the tar file and I do not see xlibs in there, so you should be
good to go.

Have fun, Stephen
