I did that too, not only the iceauth thing, and the owner was $USER
after closing the program.
so, are you telling me that the problem still exists in testing, even
though the iceauth thing above? please confirm. also, note that there
is an updated kdelibs package in testing-proposed-updates
(3.2.3-3.sarge.2), which you may upgrade to.
