Hmm, sorry, my older copy of it had it for some reason, guess it got removed.

I think you have a kde3 program being launched then, either kdeinit or kded or kbuildsycoca.
For me, typing kdeinit in the kde4 environment says:

findExe(): returning /devel/kde/inst/kde4/bin/kbuildsycoca
kbuildsycoca running...
DCOP: register 'anonymous-14805' -> number of clients is now 4
kio (KSycoca): Trying to open ksycoca from /home/dfaure/.kde4/cache-Asterix/ksycoca
Reusing existing ksycoca
kbuildsycoca: Recreating ksycoca file (/home/dfaure/.kde4/cache-Asterix/ksycoca, version 100)
