All an issue of resources and timing. As somebody else wrote, 3.3.1 is
now available.

Something we cannot change from engineering. Too bad we cannot ship mp3.

This is normally only done if they don't work.

Send in patches and I am sure Than Ngo will add them. Probably also a bug
in original kde sources or something broken in the RH packaged ones?

Right, that is a real pain. I would have personally moved kde in as this
is a real bug-fix release, but now it has to go out as an update release.

Thanks for your report and I hope you do enjoy KDE as packaged from us,
