on one machine I've got problems with the partitioning. If this also
happens to you, please bug it.

Tried this on a three hosts, and i have problems galore.
Homebrew host 1:
Adding news ticker to the taskbar then klicking on the pager
resulted in the news ticker story being displayed
The Lock/Logout applet corrupts the display, although the "The
session was locked" dialog is OK, and the desktop is restored
Homebrew host 2:
Second monitor of a dual display has a corrupted text display during
both RHGB and KDE session
On login, I get a window with "The audio playback device ALi M5455
with ALC850 (ALi M5455) does not work. Failing back to Esound (ESD)."
On a Dell Inspiron 1420 (Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile
GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)):
RHGB display is corrupted, although the KDE desktop is OK
Konqueror can't display any web pages (either by hostname or IP
address) with the somewhat unhelpful "An error occurred while loading
http://". telnet confirms its not a network issue. The News Ticker
applet doesn't display any results either, so it looks like a KDE HTTP
Using the slideshow for desktop backgrounds occasionally results in

The Lock/Logout applet only lets me lock the desktop.
When logging into KDE, the usual "Starting desktop" etc messages on
the splash screen are not present
One of the "Useful Tips" in KTip states that pressing the middle
mouse button on the desktop will give a list of all windows on each
desktop, but it doesn't work. Some other tips don't work, so maybe
KTip is not KDE4?
Typing "konsole" in the Search part of the K Menu tries to run
konsolekalendar rather than konsole. It looks like I have to type
"terminal". i.e. knowing how to launch it from the command line won't
help me here.
The CD's "Boot from local drive" option reboots (after a prompt)
then boots from the CD again.
