Good eye. That machine actually does have kde3.3, being recently rebuilt.
I'm not sure the patch offered is 100% correct, but using env seems much
more portable than set. I'm curious why kdm is messing with people's
dotfiles anyway; it may explain why ssh-agent sessions aren't propagating
into the kde environment.
Thanks for the pointer!
