Upgrading to Slackware 12.1

Not so stable. Should'nt have upgraded finally: the X packages breaks apps (due to new async Xlib), especially noatun/artsd, which is critical for me. Plus all multimedia apps, which crash always. I guess new glibc is more strict in memory management too and asserts for memory corruption. Ok apps such as vlc/wxwidgets/xdtv are buggy, but before they ran silently with thei bugs.
Kaffeine works nicely in replacement of noatun/kboodle, should have been distributed by default, because slack KDE is simply unable to play any video (use xine otherwise).
