If your KDE3 is installed in /usr the /usr/share/autostart .desktop
files could f*** up your Trinity session with parts of KDE3 starting.
But since the first PATH during Trinity launch is the Trinity prefix,
a KDE3 .desktop file in autostart which starts a KDE3 application will
start the Trinity one instead if it is installed and accessible on the
Trinity prefix.
