I have a couple of other friends using PClinuxOS installed from the live 
CD and so far neither have mentioned that they have had any problems.
Actually that not quite true, one mentioned that his printer, a DeskJet 
720 does'nt print, but that I suspect is a cups problem.

Good !  I'm glad that you are pleased with TDE.  A lot of people have 
put a great deal of hard work into it.

Note:  I did say "My installation" !   Your comment is misleading and 
implies something that was not said...

My comments were simply based on my experience having, up to now, stuck 
with Open SuSE 11.1 and wanting to use a couple of applications that 
wouldn't run on it but do run quite satisfactorily on PClinuxOS.

I never saw any of the issues that I have reported whilst running Open 
SuSE.  In fact I don't see any lockups running the PClinuxOS live CD.

Thanks to another user who kindly pointed out a setting in Kmail I think 
the issue with replies ending up in the wrong folder is down to me not 
knowing what setting and where to look for it.

The other distributions you mention I've only tried the live CD's.
