Well run without problem on unstable.  Therefore it's a dependency problem.
I did more or less the same as you did and konqueror (and the other
apps I wanted to test) work without problem.

So try:

   dpkg -l | egrep ' 2.1.[12]|1.1-beta[12]'

and update them all.  Hopefully their dependencies get all the other
packges that are needed.  My guess is that some dependencies are wrong but
maintaining them with all this shared lib loading during runtime is a
night mare because ldd can't catch them.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
