This is not a bug but a question.
Rosegarden is a KDE application and as such depends on a number of KDE packages (kdebase-bin, kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.9), khelpcenter4, konqueror,etc.). Dolphin is a secondary dependancy (it gets dragged in by one or more of these explicit dependancies).

Sorry for the error.
Bhavani Shankar suggention shows clearly which the problem is.
I still think that a kde package shouldn't take with itself unwanted software, such as a new filemanager is, I hope this can be fixed before finale release. Version 1.6 did not depend on nothing but standard kde libs.
Thanks for the support!
