Rebuilding may or may not fix it. The problem looks like some kind of
g++/linker goof. It's unlikely that the 3.3.x libraries really have
those __virtual_blah__ symbols that aren't present in 4.0.2. When I
experimented with 4.0.1, I noticed that only one shared library got a
minor version increment, and gnome and everything still worked fine
except for a small problem with the font metrics that caused "wmx" to
make it's title bars too small. Can anyone verify that the kde
packages on work under 1.5/3.3.6?
