The rendered my mail unusable.  So I had resort to my backup, which died :-(, 
so I retreated back to KDE 3.5.10 while I still had my second backup.  I have 
very little spare time at the moment, so am just praying taht my temporary 
computer will let me struggle on for a couple of months until I've got more 
time to rebuild my poor dead desktop machine, and reinstall Trinity.

So warnings to keep good backups are essential!
