Heh yeah... :)  I totally wasn't expecting it to be global data to the file
as if I wrote code that way I'd probably have gotten fired a long time ago. :)

I don't think this actually can be made thread safe "for real" the way it is
as a result.  All I have to do is have two different threads calling 
getpwnam and getpwnam_r simultaneously to clobber the other.

It needs a re-write but your patch will allow KDE to compile... I don't
know that it will work though... time will tell.

Also I think the parameter list in the .h file should be
const char *, struct passwd *, char *, size_t, struct passwd **.


const char *, struc pwent *...
