I'd be willing to bet the problem it saw with Qt has to do with the
Xrender move.

See above, yes qt-x11-free needs to be rebuilt, but probably after
the new libXft goes into sid.

I think I may close 214475, even after someone telling me exactly how to
reproduce the bug it is still unreproducible for me. I think they may
have a shitty mouse that is causing the problem. Please respond to this
bug if you can reproduce it! I have attempted to reproduce it ~ 50 times
so far.

BTW - Please do not upload any new KDE packages until I mention its
safe. We need to make sure everything compiled against Xrender that KDE
apps depend on have been recompiled first. Also when you do upload KDE
packages be sure to update the autotools files. The packages I used to
update the files are automake1.7 and libtool. Without at least the
libtool updates arm will fail to build. The list of ones that should
probably be updated in admin dir are:

You will also need the following patch if you do update.

And as always upstream refuses to accept this patch into admin, the
mere fact that upstream has autotools files in cvs should be enough
to realize they have some screws loose. :\ Also note autotools checks
themselves do not use -pedantic-errors but for some reason KDE thinks
they are necessary...

> 6. meta-kde 3.1.4 needs to be uploaded.

I hope to update this package soon to split out non-official KDE
packages into a meta-kde-extra, so that backports can use meta-kde
without having uninstallable dependencices.

I think that is about it, let me know if we missed anything as well. ;)
