library/loader problem XRenderFindStandardFormat, libXrender

kde fails to start with this error message in my .xsession-error:

startkde: Starting up...
kdeinit: relocation error: /usr/lib/libXft.so.2: undefined symbol: XRenderFindStandardFormat
startkde: Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation.

XRenderFindStandardFormat is in libXrender. problems like this
have been observed before on the debian-kde list. (google finds
no other places, so this is a debian home made problem, perhaps.)

a workaround to this problem is to add 

export LD_PRELOAD="$LD_PRELOAD /usr/lib/libXrender.so.1.2.2"

into /usr/bin/startkde, somewhere before any real starting is

i am not sure where to file the bug. is it a kde bug, a
libXrender bug or a loader bug?
