[opensuse-factory] Heads up for 2.6.21

On openSUSE 10.2 (KDE-3.5.5) and 10.3 Alpha (KDE-3.5.6), I've encountered a problem with vanilla 2.6.21-rc1 up to 2.6.21-rc2-git1. KDE is setup not to require a password to unlock the screen, but it asks for password. When given the password, it unlocks, but kwin, kicker, klauncher and may be other kdeinit stuff have died with no errors reported. Doing straces do not show errors.
If I start those 3 from the command line, everything comes back except the desktop icons and the next lock will repeat the same sequence.
The workaround I've found is to move kdesktop_lock out of /opt/kde3/bin, everything comes back intact when a key is pressed or the mouse is moved after the screen is blanked.
NOTE, this is just a heads up, so no action is expected.
