Point is, the best I can do, is fire it off from rc.local, & have it sleep 
for 300 seconds, so I have time after logging in to get kmail going.  It 
uses d-bus, and if kmail is not there to flush the d-bus message, all I can 
do is a killall mailwatcher (my launching script) and killall inotifywait, 
then restart mailwatcher.  It will time out in 5 minutes and start a new 
inotifywait instance, and then I'm off to the races.  If kmail had a 
facility to start this background task as one of the final things it does 
when it is launched, then a lot of this folderol could just go away.

hmm, maybe it does, I just had a brain fart of an idea. Worth checking on 
at any rate.  I'll advise if it works... ;)

Thanks Duncan.

Cheers, Gene
