Description

I run an opensuse 12.1 64bit system. Since some time DT starts with a strange color scheme
on first invocation after login. When I close and start again, DT's color scheme is back to
normal.

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.
