Hmmm, not using apt. You could manually download the rpms for the older
version (which I have not yet erased from the web site) and use "rpm
-Uvh --force" to force rpm to "upgrade" to an older version (or erase
the jack rpms with "rpm -e --nodeps" and install the older ones with
"rpm -Uvh"). Obviously on the next apt-get dist-upgrade apt will try to
upgrade again to the latest :-)

The rpms for 7.3 would be at:
You'd have to download the jack rpms with version 0.41.1 (I think).
