Well, lets see.  I went though my notes again and found that some issues 
had been resolved.

1.	Auto completion doesn't work in Konqueror (and other places).

This is very frustrating since as you type, the list of suggested 
completions opens, but when I try to move the mouse to select one, the 
list immediately closes.

2.	Select Folder dialog doesn't do 'hidden' files.

Best place to test this is in System Settings: General -> About Me:: 
Paths.  Try to set the Autostart Path.  So, you start at Home.  The 
".kde4" directory isn't listed, so enter "/." and you get a list, but I 
can't use the mouse to select from them but see #1.  IAC, you wind up 
having to type the whole path.

3.	Select Folder dialog won't go to the "Root" place.

Using the same test case as #2, click the "Root" entry in the place 
list.  Nothing happens.  Look at the treeview window; "Root" is missing 
from the top.

4.	Some Konqueror KPart toolbars have the wrong names.

Not exactly sure if this is a bug but no denigration allowed:

"Search Toolbar <search bar>" should be named "Main Toolbar <search bar>".

"mainToolBar <khtml_kget>" has +/- the correct name but it appears that 
the name from the code slipped through.  It should really be names "Main 
Toolbar <khtml_kget>".

5.	Konqueror Extra ToolBar still doesn't use the global icon/text setting.

This only happens if you use icons only for your toolbars and have 
selected it in System Settings: General -> Appearance::Style::Fine 
Tuning.  Text position of toolbar elements = Icons Only.

When you first enable the Extra Toolbar in Konqueror, it will not follow 
this setting like the other toolbars do.  It will also show text.  For 
me, this problem keeps popping up when I configure the Extra Toolbar.
