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.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Kodi 18.7, Strawberry 0.6.12, Pale Moon 28.10.0, Xscreensaver 5.44, Krita 4.3.0, Foliate 2.4.0

Other I forgot. I would need to trace the bug reports in my email.
