The weirdest thing just happened and I'm wondering what the heck could cause 
this: I switched from kernel version 2.6.0-test4 to 2.6.0 (home built, using 
exactly the same .config) and nothing weird happens at reboot except the 
wallpapers have disappeared from both KDM and KDE.  Trying to (re)set the 
background pictures doesn't have any inpact and logs don't show anything 
suspicious.  Does anybody have a clue what could cause this behaviour?

Thanks in advance,
