Description

LSAC(v2)
The K Desktop Environment (KDE) is a graphical desktop environment for the X Window System. The kdebase packages include core applications for the K Desktop Environment. This update fixes the following bugs: * If multiple users were using a KDE desktop on the same machine (for example by using the XDMCP protocol), only one user was able to lock the desktop. A patch has been applied to address this problem, and all users can now lock their desktops in the described scenario. (BZ#500399) * Previously, the kdebase package did not honor mount options set in the HAL configuration files. This update corrects the problem, so that kdebase honors these mount options. (BZ#663638) * On 64-bit systems, if the user changed time backwards, the KWin window manager incorrectly detected applications as not responding. This was due to a timestamp problem, which has been corrected, and KWIN no longer incorrectly reports applications as not responding. (BZ#669354) All users of kdebase are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
