I'll look at that - I'm not sure why that's happening, as pid_t
and int are the same thing. I'm forcing it to use
QValueList<int> rather than QValueList<pid_t> just to save a
block of code - I can try adding the code for QValueList<pid_t>
(it's just cut and paste and change the 'int's).

It shouldn't make a difference. You can probably eliminate it by
going into extra/kde322/kicontheme.h and commenting out both
lines that contain KIconThemeDir (it's defined in the cpp file
and not publicly available).

Mandrake 10 seems to have the same problem. I can probably add
that to the kdeui.py file (or you can as well - just "import
kdefx" should do it).

Well ... there are a few bugs left besides these. Another release
coming in a few days probably.
I've already fixed the KIconThemeDir problem, but I'll look at
the other two and see if it'll compile with no errors on
