Give this woman a cigar.   It works, excellently.   Thanks for taking
the time to explain that.

Next question... I have been watching some KDE youtube videos and I see
that someone people have their application icons show up in the middle
of the panel ala the Mac OS.   How does one do that ?

BTW: KDE 4.1.3 is visually awesome.  By that I mean it looks very nice.
So much better than KDE 3.5.

Thanks
