Who on earth advised you to go to testing to fix a buggy package? The maintainer, the original upstream developer, or some random schmoe? That's not how it works. If a stable package is broken, either the fix should be ported into Stable or the broken package removed from Stable.

Hi
Sir! if I recall this twice happened in old stable and previous, with two applications. One was probably "thwab" or "thawab" https://packages.debian.org/sid/thawab.
Other I forgot. I would need to trace the bug reports in my email.

Thankyou

Edit:
1. I think some more people would have faced similar, too, perhaps.
