I had a quick play under NetBSD 6.1_RC3 (i386 on a Lenovo T60). After
remembering to set the open file limit up it came up OK but knotify crashed.
I found that disabling audio notifications fixed the problem. 4.10.2 seems
to be more stable than 4.8.2 and a test of a few applications showed more
work. Kleopatra however just crashed, no core...

I tried to get sound working, phonon shows a default sound device, but
using the test button produces no audio :-( Not sure where the problem
pulseaudio appears to be started OK.

I haven't tried starting kde from kdm. So far starting it with startx I
haven't seen the problem with the panel...
