     In this case: 2 days ago - using the tree from QA that was 
available at the time - I've updated 3 workstations ( 2*x86_64, 1*i386) 
that use KDE . No issues except for the fact that fonts in certain 
applications ( facebook, thunderbird ) are smaller than they used to be.

     Worth noting might also be
- one of them uses kmod-nvidia-310.32-1.el6.elrepo.x86_64 and it behaved 
exactly as it should, no surprises of any kind
- one of the systems was not fully updated ( missing like the last 5-6 
weeks ). most notably nss, firefox and tbird were still at older versions.
