Strange. Is there anything special about your installation? Installation on network shares or removable media? Are there any messages printed to stdout?

Nothing too special. OpenSUSE 12.1 64bit. KDE 4.7.2
Just before I see DT's main window with bad color scheme, I get a small window for a split second (impossible to read).
I would go into bisecting this issue. However, it's difficult to provoke. Seems I need to reboot my system in order to
be sure that I really see the bad colors ...

Finally found the cause and fixed it. Reason was a gtk window which informs if loading of cached opencl drivers takes
longer than 700ms. Dependency of speed on disk caches explains why I saw the problem only at first startup.
Fix was simple: as the added value of the info window is limited, I completely nuked it.
