I get those warnings on an RPM upgrade using rpms for SuSE7.3. The
only other time I've gotten those warnings is when I actually had
moved a lib from one directory to another, so perhaps it has to do
with how the libs were built for the rpm. At any rate, I haven't
noticed it causing any problems. Hopefully that's not what's
causing the following ...

I get the same problem with KDE2.2.2 (works fine with KDE2.1.1 and
*should* be basically the same code). It doesn't work on either
testPyKDE2.py or pykless.py. According to the KDE2.2.2 docs, the
correct sequence is a call to KCmdLineArgs::init followed
by constructing the KApplication instance, which is what both
programs do. 

I'll have to look into this and determine the cause. I'll let you
know as soon as I have an answer.
