I wasn't aware that there are separate KDE4 and Trinity versions of the KDE 
applications. I've installed Amarok-Trinity now, and it works perfectly, just 
as it used to before I had to reinstall my Debian system, when I was still 
using KDE 3.5.10. 

(It's a pity that Amarok-KDE4 won't run with Trinity, because it's amazing! 
For instance, it will automagically download the lyrics of the song you're 
listening, and display it... This works about half the time, even for my non-
mainstream taste in music...)

KMail-KDE4 almost works. It crashes when it is restarted by the session 
manager, but otherwise... Guess I should play it safe, and go to KMail-

The mess with all the bugs I've encountered, seems to come from the KDE4 
applications which are run under Trinity. 

The neat inclusion of the KDE4 apps in Trinitiy's menus gives the impression 
that the integration is meant to work fine; at least that's the impression it 
gave to me.

Perhaps the KDE4 applications should be placed in a separate menu hierarchy, 
or some warning message should tell the user that it's unsafe, when using KDE4 
apps in Trinity.

I've still got to sort out the font size mess...
