I just completed a complete rebuild on gcc46 - and the modules are still broken.
You cannot launch kcontrol from the menu any longer. The only way to open it was
via konsole and 'kcontrol' directly.

knemo no longer works - same kcm_shell issue...


There were no build issues. In fact - great job pushing the patches. The only
failures I had were attempts to revert a previously applied patch where I hadn't
removed them from the scripts yet.

I don't know what changed since 3/29 and today that would break kcontrol, etc..
I'll leave this to you that know the code. I don't know where to begin. Let me
know if you would like me to run some additional test and I'm happy to do it.
I'm just not sure what to test.
