 > I would be reluctant to debug KDE on something with <1GB RAM.
 I today upgraded from 384 MB RAM to 2GB RAM and from 1.8GHz to 2x3.4GHz and 
 the difference is like night and day. Previously, starting KMail in GDB took 
 maybe 5 minutes, now it is down to a ~15 seconds. really incredible.
 Still, symbol loading takes the most (allmost all) time of starting.
 But anyway, this problem here now does not affect me anymore :)
