ok, with those very accurate informations, and after installing the 
package desktop-file-utils, I cannot reproduce the bug ...

and by reading the #29866, it appears that the problem is triggered 
by .desktop files that have multipel entries. So my understanding is 
that you have a bad .desktop file, but that it's not shipped by a kde 
package (I've all kde packages possible installed on one of my box, and 
I've *no* warning at all).

So maybe you should find those file, and decide if it is a :
 * desktop-file-utils
 * or a bug of the fulty .desktop file
I don't know how to choose between both of them, since I don't really 
know how a .desktop file should be shaped.

ok, then it was unclear. sorry, I was convinced to have said that the 
kde of 3.3.x wouldn't work on top of kde 3.4. my bad
