P.S. the reason it upset me so much is that konsole is the one KDE app I use *constantly* and for essential tasks, and until my distro gave me KDE 4.0 it had been by far the best terminal emulator I used. Adding lots of flaky eye candy was annoying, but it got less flaky and could be disabled. Adding flaky eye candy *and* breaking the single app I rely on? ... grrrr!
