Thanks James and Gabriel for the responses.  

That this is not the only problem I'm having with kde makes me think that 
something has munged some of the configuration files.  I'm also having 
intermittent problems sending and receiving mail and with desktop changes.

I think at this point I will try re-installing FC4 and kde from the original 
DVD iso.  I'm going to save the /home partition on a separate drive to do a 
fresh install and then put config files back one at a time to see if there is 
a problem in them.  Previously I had done a full install but with the /home 
partition unformatted to save the information.

Thanks, Tom
