[csw-users] KDE 3.4.1 on Solaris 9 Sparc 64bit not working

I'm interested to know if and how many other people are running KDE with 
the same environment I have and have it working (I don't).

My environment is SunBlade1000 running Solaris 9, (latest patch cluster 
installed a couple of days ago) in 64bit mode.

I've happily been running 3.3.1 for some time but after upgrading to 
3.4.1 it's horribly broken. I've deleted all the relevant DCOP files in 
/tmp and ~/ directories, and even tried with a clean user account. On 
login I get a heap of "The application kded crashed and caused signal 
11" and lots of spawned processes for kded, drkonqi, kdeinit and friends 
(174 encounting within 3 minutes of login attempt)

Truss -f on kdeinit shows it looking for (among other things) 
"/opt/cw/gcc3/lib/*. I've linked /opt/cw to /opt/csw to fix this but 
still no workie. I have no LD_LIBRARY_PATH set as per recomendations.

The only relevant thing I can see in the truss file is
ERROR: Couldn't attach to DCOP server!2336.

Any help, pointers, experience or just a word to say it *does* work in 
my environment would prove helpful.
