Kevin, you understood correctly...
Also, I have the latest build from trunk as of about a month ago

This has been an issue for more that two years and I basically lived with it --I always assumed it was some configuration parameter I did not have set correctly.

However, with my fresh install of openSuSE 13.1 with a brand new login, I decided to hunt for the configuration parameter; which I didn't find.

So, if you know of something that is not obvious I should try please let me know.
