Here is the command line I'd like to work:  (it should based on the
documentation as I understand it)

kst --geometry=1000x600+800+500 --caption "Stripchart" -x 1 -y2 -y 3 -y 4 -y
5 -m 1 -n 600 -F stdin voms.kst

Problem is this doesn't work in version 1.5 from Ubuntu 8.04 so I've tried
building 1.9.1 from source which seems to compile correctly but doesn't work
at all, presumably for lack of the ASCII data source.

Attached is the kst.input data file that I created the voms.kst template
file from.

This gives the errors about missing data sources when I try to reload it
with kst and choose the voms.kst file in the Quick start Dialog, although I
do get the plot layout and labels I'd like to use with the standard input.

 What should the KDEDIRS directory point to?  Help->About KDE in reports K
Kesktop Environment Release 3.5.10 Other KDE apps I use all seem to work OK.

I can't seem to find a kst specific bug report for the --geometry issue but
both 1.7.0 on Ubuntu 10.04 and the 1.91 I've built on 8.04  seem to honor
the window position offset, but ignore the window size.
