something tells me that major improvements to the KDE Solaris distros
are on their way. :-) it will be announced here in due time, not very
long. yes, i am building up the anticipation with this cryptic

this is the ld.so.1's security feature. since /opt/SUNWspro/lib is not
in ld.so.1's default search path, it has to be added with crle. or,
copying libsunmath.so.1 to /usr/lib does the trick too, because
/usr/lib is in ld.so.1's default search path.

this might be a Konsole Session setup thing. the Konsole configuration
options are quite extensive (i.e. which session, which fonts, the
$TERM env var, what to execute on Session startup). the defaults are
pretty bland, and they may not work with a specialized locale like
