Hmm; I just did a dist-upgrade on my system (using Sid), and fired up
K3b as a normal user. I did not get any such warning. This, along with
your Konqueror issues, makes me wonder; did you install Debian and have
stuck with Debian, or did you maybe start with Knoppix/Ubuntu/etc, and
maybe have added in some non-Debian sources? If the latter, that could
be the cause of your woes.
