I used 'gvim' as my editor. I did: <ESC>:wq. And nothing showed up
in my window. I tried editing again, and got a new temp file. I disabled
gvim composer. Then I found where the temp files are kept and cut-and-pasted
my original letter in.

Perhaps you KDE folks should have a word or two with the Fedora dudes
about putting out releases with your ALPHA software making KDE look
bad? But, also, seriously, if this is what I can expect in KDE 6 or
whatever you call it when it's not alpha anymore, then I'm not impressed.
I liked how it used to look. It was clean and simple. I seriously don't
understand the desire for dancing windows instead of a clean presentation.
I liked KDE3 save for some bugs. And I like BeOS/Tracker a LOT. But,
this seems like a step in the wrong direction.
I write elsewhere that perhaps I'll give ubuntu a try. They're the
new kids on the block. I didn't trust them. I've been using RH/FC
since circa 1995. I wanted to stick with the old "friend", but alas
Redhat doesn't seem to care about normal desktop users anymore.
As for debian, I've never been a fan; they are GPL zealots.
