 "If" of course doesn't count. *If* I had never found a bug in my code that I 
thought was stable I wouldn't have to think too long about this.

 No, it's not doing the same thing (and you made my day - do you think I just 
snapped my fingers and it was suddenly faster :) ? ). One of the patches that 
makes KDE (not only seem to) start faster is completely reordering the 
startup sequence.
