  Ok, and 1 is getting there too.  I hope to have more issues sorted out later 
today also.

  I assume you mean #5.  It was hard to do that before the last of the UI was 
done of course.  I don't know anyone working on it though.

  I'm doing 3 and 4, but definitely need more feedback for 4.  LOTS more.

  The assert gets compiled out so that's not an issue.  The problem is, the 
data could be wrong when that happens, and IIRC, we go into an infinite 
update cycle burning lots of CPU.

  That is an option.  We can even leave it there but hide the menu item for 
now so i18n is OK, and then enable it when we get a KMDI fix.  I'm afraid 
that will mean making everyone use KDE 3.5.1 though. ;-)

  Serious, but obscure corner case(s).
