Actually, this appears to be a problem that has been an increasing pain
since I first ran across it in V12.1. The symptoms go a bit like this.
When I try to open the screensaver settings from the "Configure Desktop"
right-click option, the window opens for a couple of seconds, showing
"Loading..." in the screensaver selection area. It will then crash with
no visible error and take the entirety of the desktop with it. The only
fix I have to hand at that point is to restart the session.
If I try to do the same thing from the control centre, it does almost
exactly the same thing except that it doesn't take the desktop with it.
I suspect the fault is the same one but the fact that the screensaver
setup page is embedded in another program means that it doesn't get a
chance to kill the desktop.
I have now built KDE3 on openSUSE 13.1 four different times, both by
overlaying it on KDE4 or building it on a minimal X Window build, and I
have used different systems to do it on, though on each occasion this
has been on VirtualBox systems.
The only other clue I have to hand is that the kio_sysinfo slave comes
up with "Process for the sysinfo protocol died unexpectedly" error when
I try to use that (which is very annoying and, before anyone says it, NO
I do NOT want to use that overstuffed "infocenter" thing!)
