I have been working with KDE-FreeBSD to make a patch to fix this
problem since last week.  I am nearly done testing it, so please
bear with me and I will get it committed soon.  We expect to
remove it with the release of KDE 3.2 in a few months as it will
be committed to HEAD in KDE.

Also, I believe I fixed qt32 on 18 September 2003.  It certainly
built and works fine on my 5.1-CURRENT 2003/09/19 box.  It's just
KDE that needs fixing at the moment.

I'm typing this in KDE 3.1.4 on said machine.
