The problem is that the splash screen for XQF (built after KDE was emerged) seems to have disappeared, replaced with /usr/share/pixmaps/splash.png, which in my case at least, is a picture with a KDE logo :> Not a severe problem, but it's the first time I've ever seen it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge KDE 3.2.2
2. Emerge XQF
3. And then...there it is :>
Is /usr/share/xqf/default/splash.png still the right spash screen? Sounds
like xqf might be just looking for any old splash.png files and using that.
Might try running strace on it to see if that's what it's doing.
I just checked it out, the file you indicated is indeed the proper splash screen on my machine.
Renamed the splash graphic to xqfsplash.png. Resync and remerge to try it out.
Seens to be just fine now, so I'd imagine it would be safe to close this. :>
