There has not been a resolution to this problem.

No, but I can tell you that I have setup a number of machines to run in
KDE and have been successful.  At the same time, I have set up a number
of supposedly identical machines on which KDE worked on some and not on
others (a workshop setup).  The interesting thing is that mcimage
_does_ run and stays running, but the X window it is supposed to start
never materializes.  To me this means that the problem is very subtle,
and will probably look simple as soon as it is found.


Good seeing you in Madison...
