Well...it is one of these things I guess...
Today I start up my PC, and everything is as it should
I have a login (for developement) on which I run the
latest CVS of kdelibs and kdebase, so I thought that
perhaps it was a problem limited to KDE 3.1.4, but
firing up the other user, the problem has also gone
I see 2 possible reasons :
1. Some changes regarding fonts only take effect after
rebooting (or restarting the X-server?)
2. There was something wrong with yahoo yesterday.
Either way, I'm a happy man :)
Thanks for looking in to it anyway.
