using untested packages can cause issue at times as they are untested. which is why they are tested.  sometimes you may encounter issues related to you, your hardware or a rogue issue no one else can duplicate. this can be alienating thus use at your own risk. regarding gslapt, you were given an answer but failed to apply it or did not read it.

re GSLAPT try your post here

http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=18537.0

If you are testing out VL7.1rc's it may be worth keeping the related testing repository in your source list as it will have the most up to date packages, however it is unwise to include testing in final releases ie 7.0 or 7.1 final as testing is the testing repository and packages considered stable are moved to default sources, you only need to update the sources list. you can toggle it to test available packages from testing, naturally caution is expected.
these are two different situations but worth note as suggested in the other post
