Thanks.  That's one problem out of the way.  I did try searching the
archives but didn't come across it.  Pitty that isn't mentioned in the
KMail documentation where it talks about using other browsers.

I agree with what others have to say about quality free software being
no right.  It's just a pitty that when some things work properly that
the users blame the whole system.  In some ways it might just be because
things have to be done differently and I'm sure I would have had the
same problem migrating them from NT 5.0 (aka Win2k) to 5.1 (aka WinXP).

Obviously we can't demand anything out of volunteers.  However, we
should be careful to ensure that software is as bugfree as possible
before being released as stable.  Perhaps though, it was already well
tested and functioning fine and the problems (eg shutdown) are
indepedent to a few systems.

Thanks again,
