Uh, I am a dork. Nevermind the URL
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=452053) since I am not
fully awake! The solution for me that worked:
Simply changing in /usr/bin/startkde file:
LD_BIND_NOW=true start_kdeinit --new-startup +kcminit_startup
LD_BIND_NOW=true start_kdeinit_wrapper --new-startup +kcminit_startup
Yeehaw! OK, so it is a known issue and a temporary fix. Do I assume
future kdelibs4c2a package upgrade will have the fix and replace this
Thank you! Goodbye, Gnome!
