Minor Issues on unstable=>pre4 upgrade

I observed some minor issues when upgrading KDE from whatever's in
unstable to the latest pre-release. FWIW, my notes:

[Apologies if this is a duplicate... --list newbie here.]


[issue 1] ------------------------------------------------------------

kmail (4:3.4.0-0pre1) wouldn't install because kdebase-data
(4:3.3.2-1) owns this file:


Unfortunately, I did not keep the exact error text, but it was similar
to the one in [issue 2], below.

This error prevented most or all of the KDE upgrade from
preconfiguring and installing. However, I did a `dpkg --force-depends
-r kdebase-data` followed by an `aptitude dist-upgrade` and the
problem went away.

  old: 4:3.3.2-3
  new: 4:3.4.0-0pre1
  old: 4:3.3.2-1
  new: 4:3.4.0-0pre3

[issue 2] ------------------------------------------------------------

I had a similar issue with kiten:

Unpacking libkiten1 (from .../libkiten1_4%3a3.4.0-0pre1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error 
processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libkiten1_4%3a3.4.0-0pre1_i386.deb 
 trying to overwrite `/usr/share/apps/kiten/radkfile', which is also in 
package kiten

  old: 4:3.3.2-3
  new: 4:3.4.0-0pre1
  old: n/a
  new: 4:3.4.0-0pre1

I fixed it the same way as [issue 1].

[issue 3] ------------------------------------------------------------

Konsole fonts were different after the upgrade. They were smaller and
paler. I manually re-adjusted, so it was not a big deal. I have my original
konsolerc config file and some screenshots available on request.

[issue 4] ------------------------------------------------------------

Not really an issue, but consider including a debian logo in 


The "Login Manager" control panel defaults to this directory when
letting users pick a logo for KDM's logon screen.

Other than that, I've been using KDE for web-browsing and casual usage
for the past 24 hours without any noticable problems. It's so
fantastic to have KDE on the Debian platform... thanks for making it
all possible!
