all kde apps crash

all kde apps crash

I'm having an odd problem that I believe was cause by my upgrade to qt
2.3.1. All of my kde applications no longer work (including kde
itself).

here is an example of what happens:

bash-2.05$ konsole
KCrash: crashing.... crashRecursionCounter = 2
KCrash: Application Name = konsole path = <unknown> pid = 29249

if I run top I end up with:

29250 chris     44   0 21324K 10804K RUN      0:30 85.51% 69.92%
drkonqi

judging by the cpu usage of drkonqi something has gone very wrong.I
use gnome so  I don't know very much about kde apps. kde.org gave two
options, one that the file /home/chris/.kde2/share/config/ksycoca had
to be created, so I touched the file, but that didn't help. another
suggestion was that the qt environmental variables where not set, but
everything looks correct there.

I ended up reinstalling kdebase2, but that didn't even help.

any suggestions?
