I'm not sure what KDE version that is.  The below is for 3.5.10 and 4.2.4.

Hmm, I've never used that feature.  I actually quickly remerged 
konsole:3.5 here to see where it was and check 4.2.  You're right, it's 
not there in 4.2.  In 3.5, context-clicking on the tab bar (seems to be 
only the empty part, so must be done before it gets too full) brings up a 
menu with auto resize tabs on it.

Interesting, but I turned it off.  Maybe when I get playing with my 
netbook again, I'll find it useful there, but that's why I have dual 
monitors, to avoid too many tabs, etc.  So the auto-resize isn't all that 
useful, here.

But yes, it is indeed missing.

> 2. In Konsole I can not remap the copy/paste keys in the profile.

Hmm.  That's not in the profile here (for either 3.5 or 4.2).  It's under 
Configure Shortcuts, and yes, I tested it and it does seem to work.  Tho 
I didn't try to save the changes to see if they'd stick and get applied 
in new konsole windows.  Is that what's failing?

> 3. In general, KDE components crashing, but this has improved.

That has indeed improved.  As I've said in other threads, I'm still using 
a kde3 based desktop, but with kde4 apps, now, and don't run a kde4 
desktop enough to know if it's fully stable yet (I've enough other issues 
to make kde4 impossible to run as a working desktop), but it certainly 
has improved, as at least I can play with it now, without everything 
crashing all the time.
