TDE 3..5.13 failed upgrade

I have been using TDE 3.5.13 nightlies in Virtualbox, Debian Squeeze host, it was 
working great, 

I decided to upgrade my workstation, TDE 3.5.12 to 3.5.13, Debian Squeeze from the 
nightlies server.

Failed miserably. the upgrade/install went without a hitch, but  upon starting, 
KDM-Trinity would crash. Never got a login scren. Removing desktop-base-trinity 
made it possible to get a login screen.  Logging in I get an error 'kdeinit 
failed to start' so no TDE apps worked. 

I run dual monitors and after the upgrade only one monitor would work. I have a 
custom xorg.conf file that has been working for several releases of Debian, it 
seems  TDE 3.5.13 handlles X differently than 3.5.12. 

All in all the most trouble I have ever had on a Debian box. I purged 3.5.13 and 
re-installed 3.5.12. 

In my case, I got the wrong impression from the virtualbox install.
