OK, this looks like BUG 100027.


I'm guessing the SuSE RPMs you installed did not include this fix.  You can 
either install newer RPMs (KDE 3.4.1 was announced today), or build from code 
repository, or edit file $KDEDIR/share/services/kttsd_artsplugin.desktop.  
Remove line that says "Name[de]=KTTSD Arts-Plugin", then

killall kttsd
killall kttsmgr
