Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First, make sure that all updates have been done. Run apt-get upgrade (or dist-upgrade) until the list comes up clean. After that, log out and restart X - you should be good to go then. KDE often breaks binary compatibility between major versions, so a restart is needed for an upgrade from 3.2 to 3.3. With upgrades within a major version you usually don't have to, though.
You might try renaming all the kde (the .kde directory, .kderc, etc.) stuff in your home directory, or add a new user temporarily, to see if the effect is still happening. If it doesn't happen then, it's most likely something in your personal settings. You should also check out the last week or so's posts to the debian-user mailing list, other folks have had some similiar issues... http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/...1/threads.html
