That's weird. I installed 1.5.0 over KDE 3.5.0 yesterday and none of
those three things happened. KDE is working as usual.

(I personally use xfce, but my mate uses KDE. I haven't used it
extensively, then, but I did test the three things you mentioned above,
plus a few others.)

My installation is 95% by the book: I use some mild optimization gcc
flags, and I disable installation of some KDE packages.

Let me know if I can help or if you want me to run some tests or
