Package: kde4
Version: 2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I've been following kde4-experimental for at least a month now and have had no issues with upgrades until the last one about a week ago.  Desktop does not 
start.  After logging in, I have  a chequered gray/white canvas for a desktop, but nothing else.  I've started a terminal by adding it to the autostart folder, 
but that's all I get.  No bar along the bottom, no Desktop, no wallpaper, nothing...

Only thing I've tried is deleting ~/.kde4 in an attempt to start fresh, but no luck.

Did you try the spinning that I posted you last time? If so, please let me 
And no, not installing -dbg packages is not the problem.

Well, there it is. You should have unstable repos configured if you want 

I'm closing this bug.
