Screwed up toolbars and menus


I am a happy user of KDE 3.2.2 on Debian/woody (KDE is from 
download.kde.org), but when installing that (and removing nightmare of 
screwed up packages -- conflicting OpenOffice and LyX, uselessly new X, 
etc.), there are still two problems which persists: missing Help and 
screwed up menus and toolbars. For example see screenshot of KPatience 
(according to my wife, the most important program in KDE :-) on 
http://www.ceplovi.cz/matej/tmp/kpat.png. Or most KDE programs have at 
least some menu double or other missing (konqueror has two Bookmarks menu, 
kdvi has sometimes twice item Open in File menu, without open DVI there is 
none, Help menu is before Settings, etc. etc.).

And ALL (without an exception) help items in Help menus (if they are 
present at all, which is not the case many times -- e.g., in kmail the menu 
Help has only one item "Introduction to KMail" but it is there twice) lead 
to the same message in KDE Help Center "The requested help file could not 
be found. Check that you have installed the documentation." Of course, the 
documentation is installed (but reading docbook files in less is not much 
pleasant experience -- I would hope for better :-), but there does not 
seem to be a way how to persuade KDE to display it better.

I have tried to search through for /usr/share for some mishandled links, 
but to no avail, I tried even the solution of hopeless KDE user -- moving 
~/.kde to somewhere else with hope that KDE will rebuilt the directory 
again and better, but no joy even in that (the same problems persisted).

Did anybody encountered such problems and is there any hope with resolving 

	Thanks for any reply,
