What was unclear is why you are claiming to be using Sid but not actually using Sid since you're not updating all packages. I am willing to be corrected but as I understand it Sid needs dist-upgrades to remain a viable OS and just upgrading "safely" is only causing problems.
So, to be more clear, you are currently running some kind of Debian Testing which nobody else is running.

Did you not see that i did a dist-upgrade right after the update and upgrade, and that it made no difference? And "sudo" because i was not logged in as root.
Code:
:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid)
Release:        unstable
Codename:       sid
What am i running now?

I have no idea what you are running because I don't know your habits prior to this. If you have been tracking the Sid repositories in your sources.list then it might be worth just reinstalling and starting again.

Lets compare packages, if yours have something profoundly life-changing i will reinstall as you recommend.

I am sorry I am being a little rude but that list doesn't show versions of libraries and I did try to explain earlier about upgrading "using Sid" as it were.

Weathered through an xorg* purge after carelessly doing an upgrade and dist-upgrade out of the corner of my eye. Glad i didn't panic and rush to reinstall, took me all of a week to boot in recovery mode everyday, cleaning apt, then updating, upgrading and installing back all the xorg packages in installments but i think i'm ready for anything now.
