"Big can of time"... LOL! =:^)

That could be it then, altho back to the original post, why that would 
trigger the same warning with every kde app started remains unexplained.  
Plasma, /somewhat/ less so as at least in kde4, plasma was single-
threaded and all plasmoids/widgets/applets worked in the same thread, so 
it's /conceivable/ it'd print a warning for each one altho I'd still find 
it a bit strange, but kde in general... if it is indeed the synaptics 
thing, why it would output a warning for every kde app is as much a 
mystery as ever.

So the synaptics theory really only explains the shared memory part of 
it, not why it would print the warning for everything, which means it's 
not as likely to be solved as I'd like it to be.

But you've solved the immediate issue, anyway, which was the priority, 
even if it's not as nicely wrapped up an ending as I'd like to see just 
yet.  If the other waits for the holidays or indeed you never get to it, 
I can live with that. (Not that I'd actually have much choice, LOL, but 
anyway... =:^)
