Aha!  Now that I certainly didn't do!!  As I said, I'll keep loads of copies 
and then howl for help if I need to!!

Yes, I have seen references to this.  I had not transfered these references 
and applied them to my failure with KMail.  I clearly should have.  

I think that I was panicking at the time.  We are a multi-computer household, 
and I am sysadmin for the lot.  And almost all the computers decided to die 
within a very short time of each other, at a particularly awkward time.

I take elaborate precautions to avoid KDE4 as far as I possibly can.  I most 
certainly do not use it!!  But it is a pernicious beast.

Thanks again,
