You are right. Not a question of first language, simply unacuracy. I did not 
comment out, I renamed the file !

The files went to be equal, I exchange the "bad" one, but without results
Well, what I did: I had downloaded the KDE source files in three (!) versions, 
due to time problems. So I had KDE-4.3.0, 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 compiled and 
combined, and the system was working, Yesterday, I spent the day upgrading to  
4.3.4, and "Heureka", the problem went away after that. So, probably, it was a 
building error or incompatibility of the versions.

I could not follow all your suggestions, due to this. But I will save them and 
try to learn step by step the strace posibilities.

Duncan, again thank you very much, and I am sure that the next problem is 
already showing up.

Have nice holydays !
