Thank you very much for your kind effort to help me.

I just do not understand your meaning of ``crash''.
Yes, twm and xterm (white screen) are still there.
But xterm does not respond to any keyboard input,
right after I issue the suggested command.

If you want me to debug the program and submit bug report,
I am very willing to do so in normal situation.
But I also NEED to get work done. It is close to deadline.
Debugging programs and editing source code or patch are
much far beyond my knowledge, anyway. I don't know Qt.
Every time after reboot, I do ``make deinstall'', ``make install''
and mostly WITHOUT ``clean'' before ``make install'' to ensure that
obj(s) are not changed, KDE will ALWAYS run fine.
Even though the binaries are not changed.
So I would INSIST that SOMETHING reside in those Makefile(s).
And it happens to trigger and render KDE to work.
Firstly, this evening I wanted to wipe out 8.2R from my hard disk,
as I already have an iso image of 7.4R. Download has just completed.
But unfortunately md5 and sha256 give me wrong checksum. :-(
So I must start over the download again.
I have to defer installation of 7.4R until next few days.
So for this time, I can do whatever you suggest.
But after 7.4R is installed, I just can not do.
