[clug] KDE4 cnsoring "e" for some apps

There is a solution and it's not dumping linux.

I've had similar upgrade woes with windows and os x. That just resulted in
me always doing clean installs and not porting any config across via any of
the "auto-magical" methods (the same thing would have prevented your problem
in linux to).

Back on topic... don't upgrade!

Seriously, if everything is working and you don't have _security_ patches,
don't upgrade! Often you don't even need to apply security patches but make
sure you always know _exactly_ what they are fixing before you decide it's
not relevant to you (e.g. I don't usually bother with apache/php/postgresql
security patches on my dev box because only I ever connect to it).

I'm usually up to date, but I don't upgrade my good box first. I have a
laptop that is just for toying with, it has ubuntu, windows and often others
(open solaris at the moment) and if I'm upgrading something big (a version
of gnome/kde) I don't do it on anything until it's been done on the laptop.

If that's not an option just leave it a few weeks and watch the relevant
forum/mailing list to see if others have problems.
