[kde-solaris] KDE 3.2 CVS: starting konqueror via dcop -> core

Hi all,

it seems that I cannot start konqueror via the K-Menu or the kicker button. 
Instead, I get a core dump from some kdeinit process. In other words, 
"kfmclient openProfile webbrowsing" does not work for me while entering 
"konqueror" in an exterm DOES work.

This is on Solaris 9/Sparc, arts/kdelibs/kdebase from CVS (from approx. 
monday, kdelibs from today), everything compiled with gcc 2.95.3 (no 
binutils, using Sun's as/ld) and installed into a clean target directory.

Since I cannot reproduce this behaviour on my Solaris 8/x86 box (gcc 2.95.3 
WITH GNU binutils) I strongly suspect some issue with the setup of our Sparc 
systems and therefore I hesitate to file a bug report at this point...

Anyway, since the release is near, it would be great If someone on this list 
could verify that this isn't a generic Sparc Solaris issue...

FWIW, running gdb on the core shows:

I'm still investigating, but any hints/tips are welcome.
