Amarok Music Collection issue


amarok won't build my Music collection unless I run amaroK as root! When the status bar reaches 100% nothing happens (no folders or files are beeing added) and if I play a song from a folder that I included in the Collection, amaroK says that it isn't in the collection but the song is played normally only there is no info in the Media browser(for that powerfull Media Browser I like so much amarok)! When I run amaroK as root everything is fine... to be more confusing when I use Gnome instead of KDE amaroK will build my colection whitout any problem running it as a normal user!!!
Thanks for any help

Taking a tip from the previous post, I just deleted the folder /home/myname/.kde/share/apps/amarok and then amarok worked the next time I started it. Thanks
