I was about ready to give up on KDE-3 because Konqueror and X11R7 
(xorg-server- don't seem to get along.  I notice that X.org 
has gone through versions in a rather short time and have now released 
1.6.2 and 1.6.3.  Do you know what K5u is doing about this?  Fedora has 
simply jumped to a snapshot of the 1.7 Beta branch.  BTW: the first Beta 
of 1.7 is available:

I have tried rebuilding Qt and KDE and reinstalling KDE3 and it didn't 
help so I was going to try the two X.org releases next.  Do you know if 
K5u has found any bugs in Konqueror (seems to be the tabs that are the 
issue) that might be the problem?  When I open tabs, sometimes X System 
CPU usage increases a lot (it is usually almost nill and Konqueror acts 
as though it was simply clogged up somewhere.
