Yeah, I did find that and edited startkde to remove ivman (no automation now), 
I didn't want to file a bug report until I understood how it worked and could 
file an intelligent one. :)

Of course now I have other KDE related issues. I have to say I'm VERY 
disappointed at the decision of kubuntu to release with non final KDE. As far 
as I'm concerned if KDE is in beta on the distro, so is kubuntu. I understand 
the desire to release alongside ubuntu, and I also understand wanting to have 
the greatest and latest KDE for Kubuntu (really, I love having the ability to 
try the newest betas and RC's), but I really think that Kubuntu should have 
launched with a KDE that was done! It's just stupid to have so many known 
broken things, and of course I updated my KDE trying to get past the 
automount thing and found my arts now broken, along with some other quite 
annoying things.

There's no reason Breezy couldn't have come with the latest stable release and 
put the new kde in updates later. I really lost a bit of respect for the 
distro over that decision.
