Hrmm...Well that sucks. I was under the impression that I could add/remove 
items from the UI file on a per user/system configuration. Oh well, I'll look 
into this a little more...If I have a user specific UI file any additions 
done via updates (either upgrading KDE, or installing components) will be 
ignored which is what I was hoping to avoid.

Thanks for the info
