Interesting straw man, or perhaps you simply misunderstood what I said. 
  That is certainly a good reason for you to ask me to clarify what I 
said and/or meant, but not good reason for an attack.

How about we take the attitude that KDE-4 *should* be 100% bug free. :-D

"If you are willing to accept poor quality, that is what you will get."

IAC, it must be possible for the user to do everything with KDE4 that 
they did with KDE3.  Possibly in a different way than they did in KDE3, 
but they still must be able to do it.  Some of these different ways are 
actually improvements (e.g. FolderView).

But this is not about that.  There are bugs in KATE which should be 
fixed.  This does not include bug 191846 which I have suggested be 
closed as invalid.
