Sid KDE 3.1, two problems
after a recent upgrade Konqueror started to segfault reproducibly, upon
loading just about any webpage. Here's (what seems to me) a relevant part of
the crash dump (it's always quite similar):
#5 0x412664b0 in TT_RunIns () from /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6
#6 0x4126277b in gray_raster_render () from /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6

Needless to say, Konq is for the moment entirely unusable on my system.
The other, minor issue: artsd (system sounds) are working erratically. And no,
it's not an issue of excessive load or such. It's rather strange: some of
the sounds were played only a couple of times, and never again after that.
They are no longer played upon the associated events, nor on pressing the
`preview' button in the control center. Other sounds continue to work -- as
far as I can see it's pretty random which ones work and which don't.
I have observed this sound issue on two different Sid boxes, both of which had
artsd and kde system sounds working just fine, up to kde3.0 included, until
the 3.0->3.1 upgrade.
