On my i386 (debian etch) kde is in poor conditions since the last few days, in
deep crisis as soon as more than two applications are started and randomnly
recognizing (or not) the password for e-mail.
I never succeded in printing from kde (MIME problems) and had to transfer to
OpenOffice, or dealing with Acrobat, for printing. Unistalling and
reinstalling everything for printing did not solve the problem. But now it is
I do not know what happens on amd64 because I use jwm as window manager there.
