Make a temp backup of your /etc/apt/sources.list file (like sources.list.old) 
and then rm the original. Then run apt-setup and add a HTTP/FTP method and 
choose a server etc. Then edit the new sources.list file and change all 
occurences of 'stable' to 'unstable', then run 'apt-get update', then 
'apt-get install gnucash', and it should update to the latest without 
breaking anything. BTW the latest in unstable is 1.87 and it runs fine for 
me. When you finished installing it mv the backup sources.list.old file to 
its orginal and then run 'apt-get update' again.
