Hi Harold,

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you.

I guess there isn't that much changed in KDE 3.0 that would really explain 
this behaviour. However, the change from KDE 2 to KDE 3 also implies a change 
from Qt2 to Qt3, I don't know what exactly has changed in Qt3 pixmap handling 
but it seems that XRENDER support for alphablending was added.

I looked at your screenshots and it struck me that _some_ icons did show up. 
So If I had to make an educated guess I would say that it is related to some 
sort of alpha-channel problem. I would then assume that the icons in the 
screenshots that show up do so because they happen to have no alpha channel.
