No, it is not RedHat to blame here. I'm using a SuSE distribution and have 
the same problem.

Vaughan, are you sure you are using XFree 4.x? My SuSE distribution also 
comes with XFree 4.x but my graphic card is not supported by Xfree-4, so 
XFree 3.x is beeing used. 

Anyway, just ignore these messages as they don't affect performance or 
stability of your applications.

And to answer your question regarding KWrite and KDevelop: Gideon will use 
KParts throughout the complete application. Thus the editor is a KPart as 
well. Currently there is only a KWrite-part but I'm sure there will be other 
editor parts coming along in the future.

Have fun, Marcus
