No, you cross posted.

"IIUC" should be read as meaning that I am not sure of the answer.

The previous bug in job.cpp has nothing to do with KDEAddOns,

It is a KDE ADD On the displays the image when you copy or move.

Apparently the slight difference between the dialog boxes for non-image files is 
part of Job.  And this appears to have been changed today while I am running 
yesterday's KDE_3_3_BRANCH.  Didn't finish updating yet today.

However, the first problem that you report (lack of an "Overwrite" button) *is* 
an old bug that was fixed some time ago -- it was fixed before KDE-3.3.0. 
Updating your job.cpp will fix the old bug, but you must have had an older version.
