That won't work IIRC, warty is based on an earlier version of sarge, not on
woody, and one important difference between those two versions is the new
gcc-3.x, which results in incompatibility regarding C++ libs (ABI changed).
libqt3 is one of those. That's also why some packages now have the c102
suffix to their names.

That is also a good example of why randomly getting packages from newer
version of the unstable distribution while having most packages on testing
("pinning") is not always such a good idea.
