Thanks very much - I checked and there are no special settings. It seems to 
affect half of what I try to open, but I have to make some notes to see a 
pattern. This reply window, for example, opened just fine. But restoring the 
Kopete from the tray doesn't, nor does the counter link in Konqueror from the 
bottom of your message.

Very peculiar... I might have to reboot to see if it goes away...
