Just a follow up:
I noticed tonight that my dual monitor setup was also broken (I mostly use
the second monitor only when I ssh and/or vnc to other computers, and
therefore I didn't notice this problem before).
I don't use Xinerama, just run the monitors independently of each others.
With the security upgraded version installed i only got the infamous grey
raw X "background" in the second monitor -no KDE menu, no background, no 

Reverting to:
ii  kdelibs3          2.2.2-13.woody.7
got my system back to it's normal state.
