Bluez + KDE 4 Updates

There has been a small updates on the /testing directory where some of KDE 4 packages was upgraded and recompiled due to addition to libmsn which will handle MSN protocols in Kopete. There's also an update for bluez which should make the configuration works again with the DBUS version used in 12.2 and -Current (for now). It will be set to override your original configuration file, so make sure you have a backup.

Here's the latest -Current changelog:

n/bluez-utils-3.36-i486-5.tgz: Changes in the dbus version used in Slackware 12.2 (and in -current) to increase security had some unintended side effects, and bluez was one of the things that broke. However, by using the dbus bluetooth.conf file from bluez-4, this version of bluez can be made to work again. The newer version of the .conf file has been merged into this package, and changed from a .conf.new to a plain .conf to ensure that it replaces the other version. Thanks to David Somero for the bug report and fix.
