didn't read the expected 59 bytes - continual failure

Seems to work! I changed HOME temporarily. I remounted to bin mode. ...
And it works.
I'll change startx next. (BTW, I wish the kde group would call their startx
something else, like startk, so I have a choice on startup!!)
Looks like it's the fact that it chokes if HOME points to a directory path
with spaces in it.
Thanks again, Ralf

Take a look into /opt/kde3/bin/startx. You will find a line :
if ! test -f "$HOME/.kde_mountchecked"; then
which is based on the HOME directory. To set your HOME directory to another
path only for the kde session, run
startx ... &
