I did mostly the same: I pkgrm-ed CSWftype2 that I got from unstable, 
and downloaded the one from the stable archives.
This results in a working Gnome2.8 but I'm considering following Armel's 
example and replace all of Gnome with the stable version: the current 
setup is a bit unstable indeed. Can't set a background, all kinds of 
crashing applets etc.
