That's the username that's showing, I might see if the default
username can be changed for next release.

Changed :)

Most normal folk love it as well in my brief user tests after a short

If someone wants to fill the missing KOffice icons that would be great.

Both fixed.  We'll be reviewing the adept user interface for dapper
