packages are automatically migrated from the unstable to the stable tree 
after N months, and only if they do not have open bugs on the mantis bug 
evince 0.5.2 has been released only a few time ago. it actually does not 
have any bug reported, so it's a good candidate to be in the next stable

are you sure ncurses is the cause of this?
i heard that lately gftp has been broken due to the latest gtk2/glib2 
packages... i'd suggest to remove them and try the ones in stable (till 
they do not get fixed)

imho it has not been a good idea to install everything from scratch from 
unstable right now: there are hectic works in progress during these day 
for the release of the new gnome (check past mailing list posts), so it 
happened that a few packages in unstable are actually "bad" or are 
breaking other packages.... sorry
