Hi Stefan,

Can you open /opt/kde3/bin/startkde and verify that the path is being set
with the /opt/kde3/bin directory?  Also, what do you get when you type env
into Konsole from a running KDE3.5 session?

Do you have more than one startkde installed (e.g. is this a KDE4
collision I didn't know about?)
