Bug#483444: backup image
 
Package: linux-image-2.6-686
Version: 2.6.25+14
Severity: wishlist

Maybe having a backup kernel in sid would be wise?:

Apparently there is now only one linux-image-2.6.*-*-686 available on
sid. Each time a new kernel comes out all older ones are removed.

This is nice except in the case where the user e.g., finds he can't
always boot with the new kernel. He was able to boot with it
yesterday, so removed his old one, but this morning it took several
boots to succeed, and now he wants to install back the earlier
kernel...

Also one wants to only have packages installed that are in the
archive, according to apt-show-versions.

Keep a kernel that you know works installed then.

Sounds like a personal conflict for you, not Debian users in general.
