If I could jump in here, I'm just curious how you installed the new kdebase 
and still keep the old one (2.2.2).  I played around with the "force" options 
but couldn't seem to find the right one.  I ended up removing all of 2.2.2 
anyway, but just wondering for future reference.
Iknow how to do this with rpm, but haven't got this figured out yet for deb's.

Also, everything is working well, except I have strange characters in kde's 
"Help Center"- nothing intelligible.  Any ideas? Is this a locales problem.
(I reinstalled libxml2 and libxslt1 and reconfigured locales but no success)

all the best,
