[opensuse] kcm_gtk -- again, can anyone confirm?

Currently I am having problems with kcm_gtk (the control center module
makes your gtk apps [i.e. firefox/tbird/gimp] look like they should in kde).
There have been 5+ versions of this module in the past 3 months and 3+ in the
last two-weeks. Currently, the only way I can get thunderbird to look right is
to manually start gnome-settings-daemon (which defeats the purpose of normally
only using gcond-2 to apply the settings -- gnome-settings-daemon is rather big)
With only gcond-2 running the gtk themes only partially render.

Even with gnome-settings-daemon running, all the file
dialogs are screwed up. The coloring is ignored and the font size is screwed up.

Here are a couple of screenshots that will help. gnome-settings-daemon
running in theses screenshots. (much worse with just gcond-2 running) The first
shows this email message. Notice the menubar is blank (black text on black bg),
and the menus are unreadable (black text on dark menus).


Basically, the part of opensuse that reads you .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 (or -kde
kde3) isn't using the gtk theme colors and is using a black default that really
screws things up.

Next, all of the dialogs (tooltips included), ignore your chosen font
size and
make all fonts Ginormous (Ji-norm-ous). It looks like a default 12pt font size
is used instead of the set 8pt.


I have tried 15+ versions of kcm_gtk and kde3-kcm_gtk going back to
April 2009
and the results are the same. So I don't think it is the kcm_gtk package itself,
but whatever part of opensuse reads the .gtkrc-2.0-kde* is likely what has
changed and is now broken. Does anybody know what package/process this is? All
was working great until 5-6 days ago, then after update, all hell broke loose.

Anybody else seeing this? -- or am I just lucky :p
