I admit that I don't quite understand what that means or implies. But I 
eventually created a new list just to try/test. It is no problem 
creating or using - but the list is not found in 
home/user/.kde/share/apps/kabc/distlists where I find my old ones.

Any clues, info, pointers to other mailinglists etc welcome. This is not 
the end of the world to me but irritating as 2 of my lists were quite 
large and to now remember who was in those... rather not.
