Hi Stefan,

Sorry, I'm stumped on this one.  I've never had a problem like that before
on any of my machines; the only suggestion I have is if you have another
startkde on your system, try renaming it temporarily and see if the
problem is fixed (though I don't see how the new startkde could even start
KDE3.5 at all).
