Problems with KDE 3.5.5

Now that I've upgraded to KDE 3.5.5 I find a few faults.

1) Whenever I connect a USB key, the popup asking "open folder" or "do
nothing" appears twice. One is for root, the other is for user. So, if
I accidentally click "open folder" on the wrong one (and I have no way
of knowing which is the wrong one) then the key gets mounted as root.

2) In /home/user (hda9) I have mounted two other partitions,
/home/user/pictures (hda5) and /home/user/music (hdb1). The icons for
these two directories have been replaced with the mounted disk icon.
The file .directory is still within these directories, but it is being
ignored. Even when I try to change the icon, I see in the icon
selection that the wanted icon is selected, however, this selection is
overridden and the mounted disk icon is what I see in Konqueror.

3) I don't know if it's related, but I cannot start limewire from the
button in Kmenu, nor from ALT-F2. However, I can start it from the
console. No unusual output there, however.
