 Hi George - thank you so much, your solution worked a treat.  I did
 some apt-cache searches to see what other stuff I'd gotten, but
 didn't even think to look for alternatives for the phonon backend

 I added -xine, removed -gstreamer, restarted kde and traverso and
 qjackctl work perfectly.  I'm confident the other apps will work (or
 at the very least, it'll be much easier to fix problems).

 thanks again,
