Bug#492610: Etch'n'half & KDE login: The process for the file protocol died unexpectedly

Package: kdesktop
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-6etch2
Severity: normal

I just started to get error messages at KDE login. Two popup windows appear
with the following errors:

    [Window title: KDesktop error]
    The process for the file protocol died unexpectedly
    The process for the media protocol died unexpectedly

Also, the desktop has no icons anymore even though my ~/Desktop/
directory and it's content still exists.

I'm using Debian 4.0 (Etch) and have changed nothing but the kernel:
I just updated from Etch's original kernel 2.6.18 to
2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686. I still have both kernels installed and it's
clear that the bug appears only with the 2.6.24 version, always.

There are similar reports in the KDE bug tracking system and Ubuntu's


According to those and my Google searches quite many people have
experienced the same issue but nobody seems to really know what is it

I hope this does not exist in Lenny...
