I had the exact same problem on a machine that I know doesn't have any 
hardware problems. I should have just aborted that "script" when it started 
removing anything dependent on the new gnome libs. If you got as far as the 
new gnome progs installed. Just rebuild  what you need. And use the "r" flag. 
I'd much rather have a lib not found error than rebuild the way that "script" 
does.  I'm sure this is going to bite quite a few people before it's over.
FWIW I have the new kde back up with no errors, and I'll just deal with any 
other problems as they occur.
