I see, yeah, I missed that, sorry.  I'm also stumbling over a bunch of
keyboard-oriented configuration problems with kde4.2, ones which from all my
Googling, are peoblems which are generally unsolved with the entire release (I
mean here, they're NOT FreeBSD-only problems).  At least so far, no one has
posted any fixes I can see, things like the misusage of the numeric-keyboard.
I'm seeing several other new nits, but I haven't been able to verify their
source as well  as the keyboard thing, so I won't specify them yet.

I just wish I knew if their direction was trying to fix the (really well
reported) keyboard problem, or just trying to forge ahead with 4.5 with the idea
of fixing it there.  These are SO annoying!  All the new glitz is keen, though.
