Unintended update to KDE 4.3 RC1

I added the backport to allow me to get an updated AMAROK. I forgot to uncheck it after that and on my next round of automatic updates my system updated kde to the 4.3 rc1. It kinda crippled my desktop, not completely broke it. Very difficult to get around and can't resize any windows, konsole doesn't work, etc.

I dropped down to root console at boot and installed xfce in order to get on the internet so that I could ask for a rescue.

How do I go about uninstalling the rc1 and going back to kde 4.2?
