I use also the macbook of my wife through macport to test compilation
under MACOSX.

Which version of KDE you use. Me i still under 4.6.3. i tried 4.7.0
without success. Sound like something is broken with KIOSlave API from
KDElibs. I see the same dysfunction than you...

> So, I'm at a loss to know why a previously-running version 2.0.0 stopped
