I'm CCing this to the debian bug report so there is a record of what is
going on.

I've been through the following procedure:

Install sarge chroot
Build kst-1.1.0-2: kst works
apt-get install -t testing xserver-xorg
kst works
Switch apt.conf to default to testing
apt-get dist-upgrade
kst works
apt-get install -t unstable kdelibs kdelibs4-dev
  kst gets removed at this point due to dependency issues
Rebuild kst - no source changes

The update which causes the problem is this one (note I also updated
kdelibs4-dev but it isn't included in this paste):

root at dynam:/tmp/kst# apt-get install -t unstable kdelibs

So it looks like some sort of KDE-3.4, Qt-3.3.5 interaction.  It is
highly unlikely to be a g++ transition issue as that side is pretty much
finished in Debian now and I'm sure that kst's dependencies have been
transitioned as has kst.

Ted, you mentioned some sort of Qt-3.3.5 / KDE-3.4 interaction;
unfortunately I don't know much about this; can you point me in the
right direction?

I've compiled kst with debugging symbols and am now attempting to obtain
some useful backtraces; if anyone has any ideas I'd be happy to hear
