As I said in my first post to this thread.  After we discuss the 
possible bugs, we will see about writing bug reports and perhaps I can 
even fix some of them if people are willing to allow me to fix bugs.

As far as software engineering issues are concerned, there is little 
that I can do for people that do not want help.  Still, I am here and as 
long as I remain retired on disability, KDE can have the assistance of a 
college trained software engineer for free.  I have suggested that like 
minded people join the KDE-Quality list and the we (there) try to 
organize a quality improvement effort.

I think that it would be better to say that I am analyzing the problems 
rather than say that I am complaining.  Analysis is a very important 
part of the engineering method.  The theory is that first you find the 
fault and then you fix the fault.  It is very difficult to fix a fault 
in you have not found it. :-)  We are now working on finding the faults 
by analyzing the issues which I have found on my system in order to 
determine whether these are KDE bugs and the to more exactly determine 
the nature of the bugs.  I write good bug reports because first I 
analyze the problem.  I have asked that members of the list assist me in 
this effort.

You could actually be of assistance if you would provide clear and 
detailed analysis rather than just saying that 'there is no problem'.
