... and attached is the other side. :)

so now i'm wondering, if we should not consider my patch a bugfix and
simply put it into 3.1. it is part of suse 8.1 (which is kde 3.0.3 based,
btw), so they seem to consider it stable - except for the kdesktop_lock
part it's only a few LOC anyway. the one problem we have is one new
string in kdesktop, one in kicker and two in kdesktop_lock and a missing
icon (although suse simply reused some icon called "start" or something
(a rocket)).
should we?
