Bug#585752: kdebase: KDE totally broke on upgrade

Package: kdebase
Version: 5:62
Severity: grave
Tags: squeeze
Justification: renders package unusable

I just did an apt-get dist-upgrade on my system. But after rebooting,
my KDE desktop is totally messed up. Only the binary clock widget was
showing, with the rest of them as red X boxes. The run dialog appears
when I press its key, but actually trying to run things with it does
not work.

I can still start programs from a TTY, and Qt-based programs have
no issues. I'm typing this in Konsole. Window management features seem
to be working fine too, including virtual desktops, compositing, window
specific settings, etc.

I've tried moving ~/.kde out of the way, and logging in again, but the
fresh config still had the problem.

Unstable is pinned to allow chromium-browser to be installed only. I
also use debian-multimedia, if that's important. Thanks in advance.
