I managed a successful installation on another test box I have sitting 
around here (a U20, running b106); I have a few issues esp around 
performance which I may have reported previously, but I don't think they're 

question: is it possible that configuration and installation turds from 
previous attempts at running KDE can cause some of the grief I've been 
seeing (esp. on my laptop)? If so, I'd welcome input as to which files you 
believe I need to (re)move to clean the slate ...
