When you installed kde 3.0.3, you also upgraded libc6 to the Debian/unstable
version. The maintainer for libc6 has recently removed the db1 compatibility
layer from libc (upstream removd it a long time ago - the maintainer was
keeping it in for compatibility reasons).
As we are early in the development of sarge, the libc maintainer thought now
would be the best time to remove this compatibility layer, which has been
depreciated for a long while.
This broke some packages in sid, for example apache, which still used db1
(even though db2, 3 and 4 are all available and have compatibility layers for
Anyway, as a temporary fix until the affected packages are fixed to use
db[2,3,4], someone has created a package which returns libdb1 to your
Debian/sid system, allowing the broken program to now work.
Kpackage in kde 3.0.3 (and possibly other programs) obviously seem to still
require db1, for the time being at last.
Anyway, installing libdb1-compat should fix your system for the moment. If the
kde 3.0.3 packages were in Debian proper, this would be worthy of a bug
report to the BTS, but as they are not...
I'm glad that solved your problem.
