As no-one else answered to you... I'm not 100% certain about this, but 
I'm sure enough that I wouldn't have a fear about using the latest 
version. Usually the security updates are first added to the cvs/svn 
from where new versions are released and after that the older releases 
are patched if there were security related fixes. So it would be really 
weird if the latest version would have a security hole that has been 
patched on older version.

Perhaps by uninstalling it from the Yast and then installing it from 
other route so that Yast doesn't know that you have it installed. I have 
very little experience on Yast so this might not work, you might better 
better answer from a newsgroup that is more related to Suse.
