I too am experiencing the same.
> I installed KDE2.1 beta 2. Several days ago. When I log on as root and

> Index tab is blank. However, I can still access it from the taskbar.
> This is the 3rd time that this has happened. In addition, after logging

> "LookNFeel". Next, I click on Borders I get an error:
> K Error -KDE Control Module
> There was an error loading the module. The diagnostics is:

> Since the menus are missing under "Index", the time and preferences
