There are many issues with 32beta.
Some are instalation issues (how did you install ? Which distro ?)
on suse 82, making sure there are absolutely no conflicts when installing
helps a lot.

Setting KDEHOME to somethign else then your kde31 home also helps.

Still there are other issues:
- arts_init() SEGVs (which means the arts plugin in xmms does not work)
- konqueror is hideously slow
- session save/restore does not work

However, a lot of annoyances and bugs are now fixed, and some xtras
(decoration less windows) are really handy.

But unless the 3 issues above are resolved kde32 is not ready for prime
time (at least not for me ;) )
