No that doesn't seem to help:

msp@htpc:~$ kbuildsycoca
msp@htpc:~$ kword
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

My history here is I was tracking the Ralf's KDE3 packages, uninstalled those
and then installed the proper KDE3 packages when they came into sid.

Didn't install kword at first, then when I needed kword I pulled it down
and ended up with these problems.

Did a diff of the old and pristine .kde directorys and it appears that
the old had a file named: .kde/share/applnk/Office/kword.desktop which was
the source of my problems.  Deleted that file and things are working again.

I guess you can close this bug, but there maybe others who are upgrading
kword who run into the same problem, so maybe worth while doing a check
on upgrade??
