Replying to my own message, after a complete system purge of everything qt and
kde related, and then installing the ktown packages (for woody on unstable, I
know I know), oggs are working wonderfully. They also seem (warning, placebo

for giving me the opportunity to run KDE 3.1 for the last couple months.
