Question KLauncher could not be reached via DCOP. ????

Redhat 8.0 was working great. I ssh'ed into my machine remotely and that worked. I even started X (startx) and then opened a program and closed it. Then later when i got home, i tried to start a program and got "KLauncher could not be reached via DCOP." What does this mean and how can i solve it and what caused it. ssh'ing in is the only weird thing i did, so is that the problem, and how can I solve it?
Thank you.

"KLauncher could not be reached via DCOP."

I have the exact same problem. Please somebody help. Logging out and logging back in solves the problem, but it's annoying. I hit this almost every day running RH 8.0, KDE.

I've got this same problem, and learning how to edit DCOP tells me nothing about how to solve this problem. I finally got remote logging in to work, but now this problem is very irritating, because while logging out and back in doesn't take too much time, it interrupts processes that are running in X that I don't wish to shutdown.

Has anyone figured this out yet?

I still have not solved this problem. However, I have it under control .. sort of. In my case, the problem seems to be related to running TightVNC. The problem usually surfaces if I open more than one KDE session using TightVNC. If I am careful to run just one KDE session then everything is cool.

This is quite annoying, but that's how I how I deal with it. Hopefully there's a better solution out there somewhere.
