Sorry about that. I did not test on 10.3. I can try to do so in a few  
days. What error messages are you encountering?

As per your hunch, deactivating mysql5 @5.0.82_0 and mysql5-server  
@5.0.82_0 and then activating mysql5 @5.0.81_0 ought to get you back  
to where you were. If this does not work, what happens?
