Can't say I did :-), just that a few places annoy me by being 
single-click while others aren't.

(I guess I should mention what places those are next time I notice, 
except this reminds me to go turn off single click. And hope that KDE4 
will *leave* it off; KDE3 for some reason liked to turn it back on 
without my permission...)

(Wait, on this machine, it *is* off. So I'm either thinking of my home 
machine - now, finally, after being LOOONG overdue, running Sulphur and 
KDE4 as of about a week ago ;-) - or else something is doing single 
click where it shouldn't be. So I guess if I catch any of those I'll 
give a shout. Of course, that would also explain why I didn't notice the 
change ;-).)

I don't see what C++ has to do with keeping people from shooting 
themselves in the foot.  C++ will happily load the gun, offer you a 
drink to steady your nerves, and help you aim. -- Peter da Silva (from
