Well, unless froggy's magic twanger has been plucked, most of the 
r14.0.0.3 code base is still kde3.5.  So unless someone has addressed it 
since the fork, that particular speed bump is probably still there.

As for workspace 3 that I referred to, I have 10 such 'screens', and I
usually have at least 4 of them with open terminals with multiple tabs on 
them. On workspace1 for instance, a 5 tab terminal runs, with tab 0 
being used for a root copy of htop, with which I can find and destroy a 
runaway process.  Tab 1 has a root tail -fn300 on /var/log/messages.
Tab 2 is running in my home dir, and has a tail -fn50 log/fetchmail.log 
so I can sorta keep track of my network connection etc.  Tab 3 ATM, has 
a tail -fn50 log/procmail.log but as long as procmail behaves itself, 
that can be shut down. I played with some of the procmail recipe's last 
evening, so I've been tracking how that is working.

Next workspace has a 4 tab terminal running on it, with ssh -Y sessions 
live to each of my CNC machines scattered about the Ranchette.  Theres 2 
more workspaces with terminals running on them, for whatever.
I normally run iceweasel on workspace 9, and kmail on workspace 10.

The whatever category might be gaf, or pcb, or even qucs depending on 
what I'm attempting to do ATM.

Boring isn't it. :(
