Maybe you are correct.  Tho', I don't remember there ever being a
~/.trinity dir from before.  The genesis of this system is a fuzzy
memory now.  It was built from scratch from a live CD -- either a
Lucid  + Trinity live CD, or a Lucid kubuntu (kde3) live CD.  (Did Lucid
kubuntu ever issue with kde3?)

Anyway, what I'll do is rename ~/.kde3/ to ~/.somethingelse/ and run for
awhile to look for breakage and/or un-updates (non-Trinity) packages.
