similar behavior here : right after upgrade, the system rebooted to just  
fluxbox, no login screen session choices & no kde ... my previous install  
was kde-base + kde-multimedia + kde-graphics only, so i went down to  
control panel -> system manager to see what was happening ... my prevoius  
packages of choice plus a couple more were flagged as installed ... i  
removed the two extra packages, and watched as the system *at that point*  
actually installed kde-* at all ... afterwards upon login - logout i could  
have my kde session as usual ...
my two-penny guess is that somehow the upgrade system could not recognize  
my incomplete kde install and skipped it altogether until i let it know  
about it via rc2 system manager ...

p.s.: arthur, that's not the same machine with the toshiba module issue,  
still waiting there as that's my office machine and it's working on some  
stuff these days ...
