Not at all, thank youy for your concern, we all want those programs to 
work right, dont't we? :-)

My occ profiles are pretty standard, but anyway, here they are -- 
attached :-)

I am using Koffice 1.5.0 (KDE 3.5.2). This must be the standard in 
Kubuntu 6.0.6, because I have not changed the sources list much.

I tried several times also with slightly different files. My image is 
pretty big (62M as a tiff file), but if you dont mind you could have it 
also for further testing:-) Its a frontpage for a norwegian Magazine, 
actually ...

ok ... Would be nice with full support though, but this had ... hold on 
... 34 layers (!). Yes, I know, a bit much, but I want to be flexible 
concerning my layout all the way :-) Lot of fiddling with the 
tranparency too, those two might be the reasons ...

Best regards
