konsole fails to start

For some time now running konsole has failed to work properly.

After calling the executable it takes about a minute until I get a konsole-window with the following information in a black font with red/orange background:

Warning: Could not start program '/bin/bash' with arguments '/bin/bash'.

This has started since I upgraded to 2.6.37. What could cause this behavior?

2.6.37-ARCH x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz (Sandy Bridge) with latest kde.

Re: konsole fails to start

I sometimes get this too.  At one point I couldn't get konsole to start at all and had to revert to xterm to get stuff done.  In the end I deleted the konsolerc file (can't remember exactly where is is stored off the top of my head, I'm on a windows box at the moment) and it started working again.

I still do get that error every now and again though.  I then have to kill of a "kdeinit" process to get konsole working again.  "ps ax | grep konsole" in xterm will show you the kdeinit process you need to kill.
