I'm going to continue this issue under a more descriptive heading 
because it is a reproducible bug. Running the qpe process directly 
(bypassing the init script which gets stuck in a rather uninformative 
infinite loop) results in the following error:

qpe: symbol lookup error: /opt/Qtopia/lib/libqtopiapim.so.4: undefined 
symbol: _ZN11QListWidget9dropEventEP10QDropEvent

I'm going to take a stab in the dark here and suggest that this seems to 
be some kind of ABI breakage caused by an upgrade to some package, but I 
have no idea which one. I will peruse the source and see if I can narrow 
it down.

In the meantime has anyone done an 'opkg upgrade' on their Qtopia image 
recently without it breaking like this? Conversely, has anyone else 
experienced the same thing and can confirm it's not just me doing 
something dumb?
