The suse distro is showing the cvs version of Kdenlive, The mandrake image
is of a previous version.

I know this because the workspace monitor is currently disabled in the cvs
version due to the changeover to MLT :-) And also, video thumbnails only
appeared in CVS recently.

My suspicion is that, on mandrake at least, you need to do :

./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

for the configuration options.

Do a make uninstall, do the new configure, and try reinstalling.

I am a bit puzzled why the clip monitor is free-floating in suse, that
should be sitting next to the project list like it does in the mandrake
