Nope, I don't use PPP. And it locks so well the system that even gkrellm
doesn't how processor time spikes ...

The problem is that even KDevelop lost it's icons; everytime I set a
different icon to an application that doesn't have one, when I change the
icon theme, my new associations will be lost an the applications are again
without icons.

This is a problem, indeed! The menu is too wide and menu item icons are
allways the same height (a little bigger than KDE 3.2), so no matter which
font you use, the menu is too high as well.

Now I changed my font settings so that it recovered the sharp rendering, and
the menu is not that wide, but is as tall as before.
On 3.2 the same menu (I did not add anything since) had 75% - 80% from the
screen height (which has 1024x768 resolution).

The font rendering was a little weird because on 3.2 I disabled completely
the anti-aliasing feature. I never used subpixel hinting!

When I upgraded to 3.2.1, in the ControlCenter it kept the old settings, but
it disregarded them. 
So now I enabled anti-aliasing in ControlCenter and set ExcludeRange from
7pt to 22pt, which get rid of the sub-pixel rendering as well.

Strange ...
