[trinity-users] long standing bug, dates clear back to kde 2ish time

Greetings all;

Once every 3 or 4 moons, the kmail config gets changed despite. the 
4 "sticky" buttons in the editors upper right corner being checked.

I have reached a conclusion that somehow, my hunt-n-pecking ancient 
fingers have triggered a hot-key sequence that does this.  Its been a 
problem since kde2 here.

I don't know if thats the case, but where is the tde storage of this 
hot-key data for kmails composer?

IMO, if the sticky bit is set, it should be locked, requiring the sticky 
bit to be intentionally turned off before one of those 4 options at the 
top of the composer screen can be changed.  But that isn't the case, its 
been changed without a conscious action on my part, probably 70 or more 
times in the past 20 years. Probably by my fat fingering, but that 
should be disallowed by any method if the sticky bit it set. It is not 
protected despite the sticky bit being displayed as checked.

Can this be looked at the next time you are "checking kmail's tire 
Cheers, Gene Heskett
