As mentioned on Friday, I have done a clean rpm install of KDE-3.1.1 
from on my home machine and encountered none of the problems. So it is 
certainly an upgrade specific issue. I will try on Monday to reinstall 
the broken KDE after doing first an "aggressive cleanup" of  3.0.x and 
of the "redhat-....-noarch" packages.
