So the kubuntu.de users discovered a real strange bug in amaroK described at http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125210.
It basically says, that amaroK doesn’t honor the Show Splashscreen setting from a kiosk config.
Kubuntu uses such kiosk configs to provde the simplified system with lot of preconfigured stuff, so a Kubuntu user (probably only dapper ones) is not able to deactivate the splash screen. Doesn’t sound important, it isn’t – but some dislike our 1.4.0 splash screeny ….. so give the user what he demands 😉
Plus: bugs suck anyway, imporant or not.
