Re: the above reports that Alan and I posted a while back: as others have
indicated, it seems to have to do with the following bug:


As I write in the last comment in the bug report, checking out
KDE_3_1_BRANCH and rebuilding (exact same configuration as before)  fixed
my problem on Solaris 8.  Runs beautifully now, though a bit sluggish on a
Blade 100.  I did the CVS checkout shortly before the 3.1.1 release, so
this problem should be fixed in that release.

For reference, here are my configure flags for qt, kdelibs, and kdebase:


./configure -prefix ${QTDIR} -platform solaris-g++ -thread \
        -fast -no-exceptions -qt-gif \
        -qt-imgfmt-jpeg -qt-libjpeg -qt-imgfmt-mng -qt-libmng


./configure --prefix=${KDEDIR} --with-qt-dir=${QTDIR} \


./configure --prefix=${KDEDIR} --with-qt-dir=${QTDIR} \
        --with-pam=other --with-kdm-pam=dtlogin \
        --with-kcp-pam=other --with-kss-pam=other \
        --with-java=${JDKDIR} \
        --with-ssl-dir=/usr --with-x \
        --with-motif-includes=/usr/dt/share/include \

Incidentally, despite all my --with-*-pam flags, I can't get the screen
lock to work right.  I don't have root access on these machines, so
there's probably no way to make it work.
