KDE 4.0 was the release of the stable APIs, not a stable desktop. KDE
is _not_ a desktop, it is an umbrella name for a lot of technologies.
The KDE 4.0 desktop was clearly labeled as "not for end users" and the
KDE 4.1desktop was also clearly labeled as "for early adopters only".
Complain to your distro that they included this software, that was
clearly labeled as not meant for use.

If you tell me what you find indecent about the current kprinter, then
we can file bugs and help ensure that it is decent, not just hope.
