I went back to the older hal packages (the ones with the ubuntu1
rather than ubuntu2 version number). After a reboot, everything has
reveted to normal working order (i.e., it works).If I remember
correctly, these older packages were released with KDE 3.5.5, and
maybe the bug is Kubuntu-specific. I remember this being discussed on
this list not that long ago...Could it be that the changes that went
into the deb I am using (from Jonathan Riddell's KDE 3.5.5 repository)
did not make it into the main ubuntu archive?
