OK, thanks for the info.

No, I have a Nvidia Geforce2 card and am using the proprietary drivers.  From 
reading the debian-user mailing list I've concluded that the problem doesn't 
seem to be hardware related. People with different chipsets, motherboards and 
graphic cards were experiencing the problem.  I believe it to be a library 
problem or a KDE/Qt bug which is why I asked if non-Debian people were also 
having the problem.  I everyone is seeing this then its probably a bug, if 
only debian sid users are experiencing the problem then its probably a 
library (compatibility or compile time configuration) issue. 

Thanks for the time you took to respond
