      Hi E., and thank you,

      This looks good. I just wonder if an unused key is available, 
here. "Scroll Lock" is used to toggle a hard devise switching keyboard, 
mouse and screen from one computer to another. Only Wikipedia knows what 
are the keys used by KDE3/TDE :-) I'll try when some of the pebbles in the 
shoe will be away…

      Cheers,
Patrick
