Hi all

 I still have the problem that kdeinit 3.2 crashes when it should
start konqueror on Solaris9 or Solaris10 systems. This problem
is new in KDE 3.2. Kdeinit from 3.1.4 works well in Solaris9/10 as
does kdeinit3.2 in Solaris8. Konqueror itself has no problems
when it got startet manually form the command line.

 The problem is common to both platforms Solaris/SPARC and

The command:
	dcopstart konqueror
terminamtes with:
	Error: KDEInit could not launch 'konqueror'
and leaves a core file.

It is the name 'konqueror' which forces kdeinit to do something
special. When I rename konqueror to mozilla kdeinit starts it
without problems.

Any hint where to search for the bug? Any known work around?

My environment:
	Solaris8/9/10 SPARC and x86
	Compiler: gcc 3.3.4
	X11:	XFree4.4, freetype 2.1.9, fontconfig 2.2.3
