Please forget my previous blaming on Trinity causing the issue, I just
had a dangling KDEDIRS=/usr environment variable from the file
installed by the KDE4 Slackware packages in /etc/profile.d. If I unset
KDEDIRS to let only the KDEDIR=/opt/kde3 setting, everything works
fine in respect of KDE3/KDE4 separation, except that KDE3 executes the
KDE4 autostart files in /usr/share/autostart.
