I also got this bug. This is the reason, why I am still using Lenny on my SPARC-systems. The SPARC-version of Squeeze is really buggy and nearly unusable. Other applications have similar problems. For example, Iceweasel segfaults very often and KDE doesn't load the panel. I still hope, that the next Debian release on SPARC will be better. I can't believe, that such a buggy SPARC release as Squeeze was released as "stable".. :(
I'm sorry, this won't help, the package is buggy. Use Lenny instead and hope, that Wheezy will be better.
Interesting: I set up Squeeze (KDE variant) on an Ultra-80 for a
colleague a few weeks ago and found that running apt-get killed konsole
instantly. At that point I reverted to Lenny and promised him a newer
version when I'd had a chance to investigate, it works but he finds
IceWeasel etc. somewhat dicey.
The system I'm typing on is still Etch, I was slow adopting Lenny due to
its having a non-working X server on some hardware. I'm still hoping to
get Squeeze onto a spare system at some point, but the real question is
this: will reported bugs get fixed, or are the developers so
overstressed trying to accommodate new hardware that that's all they've
got time for?
