I refreshed the package list (downloaded headers for 28 new packages), and 
the same error for package "kdebase-bin" keeps popping up when selecting 
K3B. I don't think it's fixed...

I retried (selecing for installation the whole kde tree), and it didn't do 
it this time... But I did install some other stuff, and it uninstalled 
gucharmap... :-( Really weird stuff.

Please check the screenshots here:
Please note that ALL the repositories available in the Synaptic 
"repositories" preference panel are checked.

Also, a feature request: please add Helix/Real Player, Java, Flash, Mono and 
its apps, RSSOwl, newer Liferea packages etc. There are a lot of good gnome 
apps missing currently...
