Hi  KDE-developers

  as usual I wanted to upgrade my shared KDE installation for
all our Solaris Systems from 3.1.3 to 3.1.4. As in the previous
installations I did it on top of the XFree86 X11-libraries and the
GNU tools and libraries installed in our shared /usr/local.

  I'm very impressed by the much better looking fonts in the
new release, something I didn't expect befor installing it.

  Unfortunately there seems to be something broken for Solaris.
The desktops can't be shut down (both in Solaris SPARC and
Solaris x86). 

  KDE Logout hangs in the following state:

 -      fld        4705   kdeinit: Running...

console   |        4678   xinit /usr/local/X11/lib/X11/xinit/kde_xinitrc -- 
console    *       4680   /usr/openwin/bin/X -auth /home/fld/.Xauthority :0

console     |      4694   /bin/sh /usr/local/X11/kde_3.1.4/bin/startkde
console      |     4724   kwrapper ksmserver

  When I kill the process 'kdeinit: ksmserver' shutdown finishes.

  Can anyone tell me what happens and give me some hint how 
to fix the problem?
