Since you like to be on the cutting edge, perhaps a rolling release
would be more suitable.  It certainly would be more stable than Sid
which is really for development where bugs and gotchas abound (as
you've discovered). Arch and VoidLinux come to mind.

I tested VoidLinux in VirtualBox for several months as a possible
replacement for Wheezy, and never had any problems. But discovered it
was a rolling release, and I don't like rolling releases. So, abandoned
it.

Gentoo might be another distro that would work well for you.
