Odd.  IIRC, the RC bug count was 0, so I'd say it was released right on time.  
Perhaps more people should have gotten involved in running (frozen) testing 
and filed more RC bugs.

I ran squeeze basically since the freeze, and moved to KDE SC 4 as soon as 4.2 
landed in Sid.  I didn't find any RC issues on my 2 systems or I would have 
filed bugs.

Sounds like all your problems are the result of removing KDE 3 applications 
and shipping KDE SC 4 applications.  Please complain to upstream; they are the 
ones that decided to stop supporting KDE 3 and focus all efforts on KDE SC 4.  
Debian simply does not have enough KDE/Qt contributors to support something in 
that area without upstream.

You might also try using the unofficial Trinity packages for Squeeze, but keep 
in mind that they do NOT play well with with official KDE SC 4 packages.
