Yes and yes. :-) Templates are generally the worst example of 
non-portability between GCC and Sun Studio. Often this translates 
into having to rewrite entire sections of code.

I'll download the Konversation source tonight and see where it gets 
stuck and ill have a patch.

I will also upload the K3B binary patches tonight as well. :-)
