See the attached message to see how the deb in the Ubuntu repository
also fails.  I was able to download the version in the universe and
install it, but now the data files are not backwards compatible and nice
new Import features are missing.

I guess my question is: Is there a bug? and If so, Do I file the bug
report against the KDE 3.5.1 packager (the newer package worked in 
3.4.3, hence the incompatible data file), or do I file it against the
tellico  1.0.1 packager? (the version that loads but won't work with the
data is 0.13)?

Last, and this was my fear in upgrading to 3.5.1, is there a way to
downgrade to 3.4.3?
