yeah, i think the deep freeze is in effect so....... nice or not i just simply 
got to this too late.... perhaps for 3.2.1 if it is deemed a bug fix 
(personally, i feel it fixes a couple of annoying usability bugs)... Coolo 
can share his wisdom on the matter should he care to =)

so we need to detect whether or not we've got a scrollbar... we should 
probably make the urlbar wider in that case, as well, so that the appearance 
is that the urlbar doesn't change in size but that a scrollbar is added to 
the layout.

hrm... that doesn't happen here (using Qt 3.3 version of qt-copy)... and i 
don't see why it should either, since the labels are truncated properly 
during painting... perhaps it happens with larger fonts; i'll try it out

hrm.. yes...

oh, and it's Home Folder now ;-) and i'm not convinced that even that is 
necessary. a simple "Home" might be better .... that's a discussion for 
kde-usability(-devel) for the next release, though =)
