Many thanks for the advice, and for the explanation for why unstable
might have more promising KDE content than testing.  I note your
comment in a later thread ("Fresh install of kde from woody") that 

   I suggest you do the following:
     * Install woody from scratch. This works fine.
     * Wait 5 days.
     * Install KDE from testing - you'll now have *working* KDE 2.2.2.

and I take it you mean in this case that although the resulting KDE
2.2.2 will be working, it may be lacking some features that haven't
made it through from unstable (yet).

I guess the sensible thing to do might be (a) install KDE from
testing, and then (b) update that KDE to the unstable version if
desired things are missing - picking a good "unstable moment" if at
all possible :)

I'll have a go.
