[vox-tech] Irritating KDE Error Message

Today I started getting an irritating error message when booting into KDE:

"Could not start kdeinit.  Check your installation."

When the message comes up on this system (Debian testing), KDE stops booting.  
But if I click "OK," then KDE resumes booting.  So far I haven't seen 
anything on KDE that is not working.  (I'm typing this message in Kmail.)

I've Googled the error message.  From what I've read the message is usually 
bad news.  When people get it, KDE doesn't start.  But for me, it's just a 
minor irritation since all I have to do is click on "OK" and everything 

So I assume that I should just ignore the problem rather than play around and 
really mess the system up.  Do people agree with this "solution?"  Does 
someone know of an easy fix?

Thank you.
