Hmm ..
the systray thing might bne because the app (klaptop) gets started before
the systray app has finished initialising) the khotkeys SEGV might be a
similar timing issue.

the kscreensaver issue is a known problem. (or at least it sounds like a
known problem )
Try checking the directory /etc/xdg/menus .
That should contain a couple of files named something like kde-*

Redhat might store it's xdg files somewhere else of course ;)

>> Still there are other issues:

still there. even artscat has this issue.

>> - konqueror is hideously slow
This might actually be caused by our proxy or our DNS server .. if I change
the proxy settings KDE becomes much snappier ...

>> - session save/restore does not work
> Haven't stumbled with any of these :/
are you using xmms ?
If so, which version of the arts-output/arts-plugin are you using ?

Does session save/restore work for you ?
Do you manually save or simply restore the desktop as it was when you last
exited ?

The middloe mouse button window menu (click midmouse in background) does
not what you want ?
