my Dolphin is poorly

@Debian+  After upgrading udisks and dbus via aptitude (Debian wheezy) I got the following when trying to launch Dolphin (which I have to admit I find it difficult to live without these days. PCManfm is quicker,  but speed isn't necessarily everything):

elmussol@box:~$ dolphin podcasts/
Object::connect: No such signal QDBusAbstractInterface::DeviceAdded(QString)
Object::connect: No such signal QDBusAbstractInterface::DeviceRemoved(QString)
Object::connect: No such signal QDBusAbstractInterface::DeviceAdded(QDBusObjectPath)
Object::connect: No such signal QDBusAbstractInterface::DeviceRemoved(QDBusObjectPath)
Failed enumerating UDisks2 objects: "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.TimedOut"
"Activation of org.freedesktop.UDisks2 timed out"

And then the last two lines repeated. I have no clue what to do with this.

Two reboots seem to have solved most of the problems. I need to check the output of journalctl and systemctl further.
zip problems in new[er] KDE

Running aptitude safe-upgrade was exciting this morning as the whole of KDE shifted version from 4.11.x to 4.12.y.

I have run into problems with zip/cbz files and Ark/Dolphin integration which I think is associated with the following:

aptitude changelog ark

ark (4:4.12.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New patch: use_libarchive_for_zip_files (Closes: #723963)
  * New upstream release.

Problem 1: cbz/zip files produced in Ark will not now open in either Okular or Evince. The okular backends package also updated.

Problem 2: the Extract submenu on right-click context menu in Dolphin has disappeared. I now have to go into Ark to extract the contents, which is annoying.

Anyone else seeing this?
