This is an old (but unresolved) issue, but so far all my efforts to track it 
down has failed. Basically, when you click on an entry in "recent projects", 
it should emit a signal that contains the url to open (this all happens 
within the KDE framework) but for some reason, the url that I recieve in the 
connected method is empty. I posted to kdevelop to see if it was a know issue 
with kdevelop 2.0 projects (which kdenlive started out life as)  but did not 
get an answer.

Yes, I should probably fix opening/saving of files before I do anything else. 
I want to change the way files are loaded, so that I can support 
multiple project formats - in particular, I would like to support Kino.

I was actually going to post today and say that I tried latest piave and the 
mouse wheel was working for me :-) From when it was freezing up on me, I was 
getting X async errors. I read up and it suggests that X operations are being 
performed in more than one thread , which is apparently something that should 
be avoided at all costs.

That sounds reasonable.
