> Recently KDE4 packages in kde4.debian.net seem to have been updated from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2. Unfortunately they now depend on Qt4 >= 4.4.3, which is available in Sid, but NOT in Lenny. As these backports are made explicitely for Lenny, this is odd.

I was surprised when reading this email because I have not remember making the
backports against qt 4.4.3, but given i made then too much in hurry i was not
surprised i have mistankenly built against 4.4.3. And I was planning backport
qt 4.4.3 anyway.
Today when finally i was able to look at finishing this, I have realize that
i386 backports are built against 4.4.0 but amd64 are built against lenny with qt
4.4.3, so there it is Richard's problem.
I am going to rebuild amd64's backports so they depend on qt 4.4.0 and i am
going to upload a backport for qt 4.4.3.
By default, this new qt 4.4.3 will be installed, i think it is ok for most of
the users, since qt 4.4.3 solves some nasty problems for people using kde 4,
and it has full compatibility back to stuff built against 4.4.0. Lenny won't
be released with 4.4.3 just for bad timing.
I will add all this info later today or tomorrow when updating kde4.d.n for
announcing the backports.
