Can you do that? Surely schema differences will bite you? Do newer
backends support older protocols? I thought you should always run
matched backends and frontends?

FWIW (and not because I'm a bit bord at work or anything), I've just
downloaded 0.22 fixes and built it with no major issues. This is on a
machine that is running 0.25pre. (Which I build from source; so I do
have all the necessary dependencies.)
Please include all output in bug reports.
