[kde-linux] grumble about konqueror image gallery change

For some reason, awhile back, the Konqueror image gallery plugin decided 
to give the thumbnails double file extensions (filename.jpg.jpg). When I 
went to report this at the kde.org bug database, I found it had already 
been reported and marked as WONTFIX because the developer decided for 
some utterly irrational reason to no longer have the plugin trim off the 
file extension before naming the thumb. That bug report said something 
about avoiding filename clashes, but the thumbnails are put into a 
separate thumbs folder, so there's no possible filename clash to avoid!

Anyway, when I tried to provide a comment to that effect, the kde.org 
bug database gave me an error and invited me to contact the webmaster 
with the date/time and info. Forget it. The server's already recorded 
the date/time and logged the error, so forget it.


And my wife's laptop with PCLinuxOS got GIMP 2.4 last week during 
update, and my laptop with Debian is still stuck with 2.2 ...

Sorry for grumbles, just needed to get it off the to do list!
