KDE on Sid is currently undergoing the transition from 3.5.2 to 3.5.3.
Maybe you upgraded at a moment when your mirror offered a combination of
new and old packages which leads to problems. Upgrading again today
might be enough to solve the issue. If you want to compare packages,
here are the 3.5.3 ones that I have currently installed:
$ dpkg -l kde\* kwin | grep '^ii.*3\.5\.3'
ii kdebase 3.5.3-1 base components from the official KDE releas
ii kdebase-bin 3.5.3-1 core binaries for the KDE base module
ii kdebase-data 3.5.3-1 shared data files for the KDE base module
ii kdebase-kio-plugins 3.5.3-1 core I/O slaves for KDE
ii kdegraphics 3.5.3-1 graphics apps from the official KDE release
ii kdegraphics-kfile-plugins 3.5.3-1 KDE metainfo plugins for graphic files
ii kdelibs 3.5.3-1 core libraries from the official KDE release
ii kdelibs-data 3.5.3-1 core shared data for all KDE applications
ii kdelibs4-dev 3.5.3-1 development files for the KDE core libraries
ii kdelibs4c2a 3.5.3-1 core libraries and binaries for all KDE appl
ii kdemultimedia 3.5.3-1 multimedia apps from the official KDE releas
ii kdemultimedia-kappfinder-data 3.5.3-1 multimedia data for kappfinder
ii kdemultimedia-kfile-plugins 3.5.3-1 au/avi/m3u/mp3/ogg/wav plugins for kfile
ii kdemultimedia-kio-plugins 3.5.3-1 enables the browsing of audio CDs under Konq
ii kdenetwork 3.5.3-1 network-related apps from the official KDE r
ii kdenetwork-filesharing 3.5.3-1 network filesharing configuration module for
ii kdenetwork-kfile-plugins 3.5.3-1 torrent metainfo plugin for KDE
ii kdepasswd 3.5.3-1 password changer for KDE
ii kdeprint 3.5.3-1 print system for KDE
ii kdesktop 3.5.3-1 miscellaneous binaries and files for the KDE
ii kwin 3.5.3-1 the KDE window manager
The rest of my KDE packages are still at version 3.5.2. With this
combination I do not observe the problems that you have.
You might also want to check out ~/.xsession-errors or run kcontrol from
a terminal window to see if there are any meaningful error messages when
you try to activate multiple desktops.
