I spent most of yesterday afternoon and today updating my 
repository and building new packages for the first time since 
January. Late today I updated my system with those packages.

A whole bunch of things blew up.

Launch feedback stopped; I was being interrupted continually by 
kwallet/tdewallet, which I don't use; mimetypes were screwy; kmail 
wanted passwords; and whatever else I'm not remembering now that 
I've regained some sanity and composure. I needed about three hours 
to repair the confusion as well as debug what happened. Good thing 
I have a good backup strategy.

Everything was traceable to the recent renaming rampage.

The biggest problems were creating new rc files but not 
transferring the contents from the old rc files --- or renaming the 
old rc files, as well as the renaming of khtml->tdehtml and kfile-

I pushed patches to update the migratekde3 and r14-xdg-update 
scripts. Even if you have already run the r14-xdg-update script 
some time ago, do so again using the 'force' parameter in order to 
benefit from the latest patch, which will update affected files. Be 
sure to do this before starting Trinity.

There might be additional files affected that I am unaware and were 
not part of the patch set.
