Anti-aliasing problems prevent KDE startup


I was trying out the kde2.2beta1 in unstable and it seems all great
and fun excluding the anti-aliasing issue.

When I turn on anti-aliasing the next time I login the KDE will think
it has started successfully leaving me with a gray blank screen. It
looks like it's kwin that crashes (from what I saw when I started kde2
from an xterm), but I can't be sure. I guess the unresolved symbols
in kdelibs have already been reported but for the record:
The antialiasing issue renders the system useless, and I didn't really
understand the reason of the freeze until I turned it off in the new
configuration wizard that greets you retrying everything. You
think your computer is fast and turn all the fancy effects on leaving
you with a too plain desktop. :P

And I haven't been able to find a log of kde error messages when I
login from kdm. What am I missing? A warning/error log would be
