If I understand you right, without this patch kst can be run but the
datasources and plugins won't work, which means it's basically useless?

If that's the case, then I understand why the Mac OSX screenshots Peter
pointed at (http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Math-Scientific/Kst.shtml) look
so empty. On that page there is a link "Tell us about an update", I
think it would be nice to tell them when you can do something useful
with the tool, and maybe provide some instructions on how to produce
better-looking screenshots. I'll let someone with Mac OSX tell them,
though, as I can't tell what works and what doesn't and it may be a
little too early to ping them.
