Its not Ben asking the question its me ;)  Yes I'm like you in that I 
wouldn't want the default settings as I prefer to have the vanilla KDE 
settings rather than KUbuntu's...

I thought thats what this list was..?  Its just I use news.gmane.org to 
post and read as it is easier for me than having all the email sent at

can report it?
