Hrrrm... that didn't seem to work - same errors. And after getting rid of the 
la files, at least one application (konqueror) failed to start up, 
complaining about a missing la file. Not that I have any great desire to run

nonetheless. Luckily I backed them up. 

So what's the next quickest workaround?
