At least once a month you should follow this procedure:
NEVER EVER do a dist-upgrade nor upgrade whilst in X
Always check Current Warnings on the aptosid main web site. The warnings are there for a reason due to the very nature of unstable (Debian sid), which also updates 4 times per day.
Log out of Openbox.
Go to Textmode by doing Ctrl+Alt+F1
logon as root,
and then type:
init 5 && exit
Or first download the necessary files logged in and then upgrade:
apt-get dist-upgrade -d # download but don't install yet
init 3 (terminal mode)
NEVER DIST-UPGRADE [or UPGRADE] with adept, synaptic or aptitude
