Please, no HTML.

Did you get this taken care of or not?

I still had it marked to look at later and obviously it fell thru the 
cracks and I hadn't gotten back to it until now.  But I'm trying to tie up 
some loose ends and this is one of them, so...

If it's still an issue, what kde version, what xorg-server version, and 
what distribution?

And actually, if you fixed it and remember how, if you can post it, your 
explanation will probably be briefer and more to the point than mine would 
be, and may well be used by others with the problem, so posting it would 
be appreciated.  =:^)

(I've had this happen and had to figure out how to fix it here.  Too bad I 
didn't get back to the post when it probably could have made a difference.)
