Probably not duplicatable but that is when we invoke Murphy :). The date
problem on kdevelop was the most obscure problem I have seen. It took 3
people working early in the morning to develop a pattern that jumped
out to one of them.

I am telling people I know to delete kdebase, kdenetwork, and kdepim
before they start updating from 3.1.4 to 3.2. The only problem I have
right now on 4-stable is producing a package of kdegraphics. Since I
have to build it on everything, I haven't installed 3.2 on anything
with less cpu than an AMD-1600+ XP.
The spinlock problem is something else. I don't think it has settled
down yet. Using libmap.conf works but people say it is a kludge. I want
a clean system but doing a portupgrade -ufa on 5-current and a 1600+XP
will take day(s).
