Hopefully. I'm planning on upgrading to slack 13.1 which, according
to documents, uses 4.4.3

Thanks for the input, there is no /usr/share/apps/RecentDocuments
on my system. Running 'locate -i recentdocuments' I get the
tim at bart:/usr/share/apps$ locate -i recentdocuments
none seem to offer any solution and show (relatively) ancient
I hope to see a time when a year-old desktop is not considered
I'll mark this up to a trivial problem which is probably rectified
when I reboot.
