Bug#609255: KDE upgrading

It happened to me upgrading my first kde desktop today, which resulted
in a completely not working KDE enviroment: after logging in, a scrambled
desktop background appeared and nothing else. Of course, I did
a whole upgrading, because that (multi-user) desktop 
had many different desktop environments installed and I did not
put on hold kde 3.5 packages, because it was pointless for me.

I would add a big WARNING for users at upgrading time about that. 
I got a working environment by installing 'kde-full' after completing the whole
dist upgrade. Maybe, this is not evidenti enough by current release notes, I
would stress the following concepts:

- The KDE env will be *ruined and unusable* just after a plain 
- Installing kde-full or kde-standard is *mandatory* and
  it should happen just after upgrading.
