We tested this change as we do all GNOME development versions.  In the
past, GNOME/KDE conflicts were quickly brought to light by our testers.
It seems that this time around, we did not have anyone trying GNOME 2.14
with KDE on the same machine.  I was rather shocked myself to learn
about this and the xpdf/poppler conflict so late.
