  The problem is glibc-2.13-4. I have about 5 Arch/Trinity Virtualbox VMs. On
one I had not updated, I started Trinity x86_64 and there was NO kdesktop crash.
I then proceeded to update the VM to the current Arch packages which included:

[2011-02-22 11:18] upgraded trinity-kdebase (1221507-1 -> 1221588-1)

  On next reboot/restart, I got the kdesktop.kcrash (attached). So then I
downgraded glibc (2.13-4 -> 2.13-3), restarted Trinity -> perfect No
kdesktop,kcrash. It looks like this is a glibc issue, so I'll follow up (below)
with Arch to make sure it looks like glibc and not a package issue. Thanks for
your help.

  Arch devs - Do you think this could be a packaging/patch issue with Arch, or
do you think is going to be glibc itself? It looks like glibc to me, but I
thought I'd ask first before going to the glibc folks.
