DCOP problem after Etch with Kde upgrade

About a week ago I obtained the latest Etch (Kde version)
from Debian.org and installed it without any problems.

Yesterday I updated and upgraded the installation - took
many hours on a dialup connection (60 Mb, 58 packages,
mainly Kde - no packages were deleted). There were no
problems reported with the upgrading.

At the next boot, the Kde Desktop starts to come up and
then stops with the following error message:-

There was an error setting up inter-process communications
for KDE. The message returned by the system was:-

"Could not read network connection list
Please check that the dcopserver program is running."

I don't understand DCOP, but have ascertained there is no
.DCOPsever file in /home/john as there is on two other boxes
running Etch (these need upgrading, but I'm hesitant to do
so as I feel this problem can be due only to the upgrade).

How is the file created and how do I find out if the DCOPserver
is running?

Assistance will be appreciated.
