I was polite.  I replied to be precise about my report, which you
seemed to have misunderstood, and I did not want it to become diluted

did you compare it with Mozilla?  On my machine it is really night and
day between the two.  With my example, scrolling with konqueror seems
to be routed through a drunken dwarf on pluto.

This has been a recuring concern for me.  Scrolling with Konqueror
sucks for me.  It's a really sore point.  Don't mistake me: I love
KDE; I wouldn't use anything else.  Yet, where scrolling is concerned,
everything else is better.  Mozilla is better.  Even my aging W2K dual
boot which is mostly gathering dust is better (although it is
noticeably slower for most other things).

Something is deeply wrong here, at least for me... and it is wrong
just in KDE because I cannot observe the same problem except in
Konqueror.  I was hoping that my example might be helpful to
illustrate the problem and zoom in on its cause.
