That's what I meant: if D-Bus is auto-startable or if it's already 
running, then KDE apps start. I don't remember seeing the code that 
checks if kdeinit is running, though.

What I meant by not available is if it's not running and cannot be 
auto-started -- like in Unix shells without $DISPLAY. In such case, KDE 
applications will refuse to start at all.
