I just loaded every single kdeedu app and tested Open File. No crashes.

The firefox/acroread problem can be fixed by running "setarch i386"
before starting firefox. I'll rebuild the firefox package to do that
auto-magically, just in case other plugins get confused about which
arch they are running on vs the arch that firefox was built against.

Thanks for the bug reports, I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!
