Deb-multimedia has a history of conflict with official Debian packages. 
Stuff gets pulled in which breaks official packages, notable vlc. You 
should at least never dist-upgrade with that repo enabled. We all use it 
sometimes though, just watch out.

I don't know much about libxine2* but did notice that xine-ui (maybe 
also other xine-orientated packages) depends on it. Seems it can coexist 
for now but maybe libxine1* will disappear from sid sooner than later. 
If kaffeine can be built against libxine2* that might avoid problems later.
