i had exactly the same problem after upgrading from kde 3.3.1. i'm using 
a sunblade 2500.

unfortunatly i can't give you any hints how to solve that problem, 
because my setup was f*cked up anyway (diskspace problems) and i simply 
purged all csw packages and all files and installed everything from scratch.
the newly installed kde packages are running just fine (besides the 
known problem with /tmp/.dcopxxx).
