Xorg works ( i can run twm successfully), but trying to start kde bombs out. It looks like kded is barfing trying to get a a lock on the shared cache. Everything's up to date as of a portsnap fetch this morning. Output from startx follows. Hopefully someone can help, as I'm out of ideas.

The kde4 line is in ~/.xinitrc

I created a new user with an empty $HOME, added the startkde line to .xinitrc and had the same problem. I did notice that drkonqi is crashing and writing out a .core file, so I'll see if gdb can tell me anything.
