Bug#412974: linphone: Doesn't start if no KDE apps are running

Package: linphone
Version: 1.5.1-1
Severity: normal

Linphone wouldn't start with the error message
Creating link /home/erich/.kde/socket-hepcat.
can't create mcop directory
until I started konqueror first. Then it started fine.

A strace looked like this at the end:
stat64("/home/erich/.kde", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0700, st_size=4096, ...}) =
uname({sys="Linux", node="hepcat", ...}) = 0
lstat64("/home/erich/.kde/socket-hepcat", 0xbf8ee250) = -1 ENOENT (No
such file or directory)
write(2, "can\'t create mcop directory\n", 28can't create mcop directory
Since that is a symlink to /tmp, I would have to always start some KDE
app first, then run linphone?
