Phew! That's a lot in there but ill try to answer those which i can. But 
before i continue, some settings in your mail composer make it really hard to 
read this and your last couple of posts. I think it is the HTML settings and 
word wrap settings. Anyway...

Sorry, i do not quite understand what you mean there. Are you referring to the 
device notifier applet?

Are you sure there is no kaffeine.desktop file in ~/Desktop? And only 
rhythmbox? what error do you get with say, Amarok?

This has changed in kde trunk. So in 4.2 you will see that dolphin is not the 
only choice.

For this, please contact the fedora forums. As a non fedora user, i have no 
clue what swtichdesk is! ;)

This was just added in kde trunk and so will be available in 4.2 :)
