I build arts, kdelibs, kdebase, kdenetwork and kdepim of 3.3.0beta1 
with -g and no optimizations at all, and then i stepped through in 
dbx in kfmclient (this is with Forte 8). Whenver it forked, i 
attached a new dbx session to the forked child, until i noticed that 
a certain code path in kdelibs/kinit/kinit.cpp was never called, 
because this code path was conditional on
if (getenv("KDE_IS_PRELINKED") && ... )

so i set KDE_IS_PRELINKED just to force the code path through this 
segment, and the SIGSEGV's disappeared. :-)
