So, who's a bloody liar? Me, or is my computer in cahoots with KDE's cvs to 
deceive me?

Eh? I've just cvs upped, compiled and _tried_ the damn thing out. No 
checkboxes. Just text fields.

So? It wasn't.

It's the app that crashes. It's a buggy, ugly, confusing thing at the moment. 
I was asked whether I'd looked at the bugger, I did, and it crashed.

No, it isn't. You, and Aaron, propose to remove options my _kids_ use from 
KControl. So, if my _kids_ who are _eight_ years old want to have the _same_ 
power over their desktop they they have now in the future, they will have to 
use KConfEdit. So the point isn't _moot_, it's bloody relevant.
