With kgtk-qt3 it is strange. With original 3.5.13 for me it was causes 
crashes => not possible to login at all. After selecting patches for 
3.5.13.1 (including a change from autotools to cmake), kgtk-qt3 for me 
suddenly began work.

As seen, we can not clearly say that it would not work. For someone is 
working, for someone not. In any case, for some may be a source of 
unpleasant problems.

Indeed - I also uninstalled it because it is not compatible with Inkscape 
and DVDStyler. And I do not know that it would be easy for users to add 
to the list of programs for which no behavior may to be modified.
