After the long wait and all the trouble, instead of wining I keep my own 
packaging for debian and have everything for 3.1 alpha packaged. Not to the 
same high standard as the real packaging, but in a working condition. I am 
running 3.1 alpha since about a week, and it appears to work pretty good now.

I try to keep the same packaging as the real stuff, even if that is a moving 
target, but have a sligthly different way of doing it, since I often 
incrementally rebuild from new cvs updates, and I also have a system that 
catch changes

And then I also found in the past that building kde on my own system is so 
much more stable than the general builds.  Particularly after all the 
problems this spring. I also get the latest KDE patches incorporated when 
they come.
