System: NetBSD gussie.hclsmith 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (GENERIC) #3: Sat Aug 18 23:37:05 CEST 2001 i386

	(read this all through before flaming me - i know it *looks* like
	it should be a KDE bug report but i think it may be platform-related...
	and KDE have `closed the book' on v2 bugs.)

	since 2.2.0 (i think) thumbnails/previews haven't worked on my KDE.
	since i'd been installing from my own pkgs i wrote it off as either
	a quirk of my box (in which case there was little point pestering
	anyone else about it) or a real bug (in which case someone else
	would report it, presumably, surely...)

	but i was slow building the 2.2.2 release and the `official' pkgsrc
	was released ... and what i've built from that *still* has
	broken thumbnails (the image looks right, but the colourmap
	is all wrong).

	and I'm not seeing thumbnails left over from before; i erased them
	all.  and it's not the part of konqueror/etc that displays thumbnails;
	i discovered i can generate my own and konqueror displays them perfectly
	if i put them in the right place (~/.kde/share/thumbnails/something).

	thus i think the thumbnail generator is broken.  the PNGs it leaves
	in the thumbnail directories all seem to be truncated to 33 bytes.

	I checked the KDE bug database but the only good match i found
	seems to be about Solaris shared memory problems (bug 27517)

	Could someone puleeze let me know if it's just me??  is NetBSD's
	sharted memory f*ing it like Solaris', or is my box braindamaged,
	or just what ...

	i know this is isn't a good place to send this but it's driving
	me nuts, i suspect it's limited to netbsd, ... the `official'
	pkgsrc preserves the fault on me, &c &c
