Well, I give you that, but that's no reason not to file a bugreport. If they fix 
that only in KDE 4.1.x that's fine with me too. And I hope they'll at least 
provide security fixes for KDE 3.5.x for some years or I have to get myself a 
new notebook I guess...

(Un-)fortunately (I don't know which one yet), after the release of Fedora 10 I 
gotta leave my reliable Fedora 8 behind. Are there still driver problems with 
X-Server 1.5 and KDE 4.1?

Greetings,

Sandro
