      I am scared, reading that... There is only 1 source of source files, I 
suppose. Until now, I incriminated some Grub, X and others "low level" 
softwares (but not hardware!). But what to think when it is KMail that 
bugs???

      Related to KMail, I mention just now the nice feature that is the 
local date representation corresponding to the sender, while headers 
are "fantasy represented headers". I see that the backgroud color is 
related to the time of the day. But in the same time, I can see a little 
bug representing the XFace. The forground and background colors change from 
one click to another on the same mail (see attached pictures). I noted too 
that in the french version, there are two Ctrl+S in the menus:
- "File" (Fichier) menu for the "Save as" (Enregistrer sous...) item, and in 
the
- "Edition" (Édition) menu for the "Find" or "Search" (Chercher...) item.

      I'm currently using Fedora17 + TDE. There are plenty of small pebbles 
in my shoes, but I can live daily with it. It would be the distribution I 
would suggest yet, for a complete installation. But I do not give up with 
Ubuntu, trying from KUbu 10.10-TDE (downloaded on 16/08/2011), as suggested 
and with the support of Slavek.

      Cheers,
Patrick
