[kde-edu]: Phonon freezes KTouch

Hi there,

I just compiled the most current kdesupport, kdelibs, kdebase and kdeedu  
SVN versions and found that KTouch was freezing during start up. The  
problem is the Phonon library, after initializing the Xine-backend and  
selecting the output plugin the execution just stopped.

In my local copy I simply commented out the lines where m_player in  
KTouchTrainer is initialized (the lines with Phonon::createPlayer() ), and  
now it works nicely again.

This should be checked and tested when the October KDE4 release is made.  
Given the fact, that Phonon is not quite ready, I would even suggest  
leaving out (= not compile) the sound part in KTouch until KDE's  
sound/multimedia engine works.  What do you think?
