Good addition! =:^)

Thx for the hint! =:^)  I always have trouble with that when I'm trying to 
troubleshoot why, for instance, a gtk app started from konsole looks 
different than the same app started from the menu (whichever one) or 
krunner.  (Hint, if kde's color settings are set to export colors to other 
apps, kde sets the gtkrc vars to point to its color settings, but 
depending on start method, the vars might not actually be set when the 
starting gtk app checks them.)
