Things just may get lost, sorry.

I see several kinds of messages:
- kcheckrunning not found in PATH... this can indeed be fixed, and I'll do 
it, but it's harmless;
- logs of activity... they're expected;
- the KSharedDataCache one, "ensure this partition...", is harmless (I'll 
patch kdelibs to hide this as it's causing a lot of misunderstandings... 
and maybe I'll just make it work on 9.x and 10.x);
- messages about Soprano/Akonadi/Virtuoso not being started... I guess 
it's because they still have to start, and sure enough they disappear 
after a while, and Akonadi/Nepomuk seem to work;
- X errors... well, they're due to my driver.

Apart from this, Plasma Desktop starts successfully, Amarok can play 
music... In short, my session is fully restored. Apart from KWin, but a kwin 
--replace would be needed for this.

I don't understand what "starting directly" means. Anyway, if you see 
the same messages, there's nothing wrong here as well.
