Dennis, I suspect that this may not be related to your particular
configuration but a bug related to the build configuration of KDE 3.1
on the CCD.  Try:

  nm /usr/sfw/kde/lib/libkdefakes.so | grep getdomainname

(or wherever this library is located on your system).  If it returns
nothing then all should work; however if the KDE version of the
routine is compiled in this library - which it shouldn't be, since
Solaris has its own perfectly good version - this may be bug 50754.
Unfortunately, the KDE fake routine doesn't interface properly with YP
so any user database lookup fails.

I'm not aware of any solution other than upgrading to current KDE.
