clearly not appropriate in non-latin alphabets!

So you have all the ones I have - except "Default Applications" (which
should have the same icon as the parent "KDE Components"). btw, if I go
into "Default Applications" and choose Help | About Default Applications,
the "about" calls it "Component Chooser".  I still can't figure out what
the actual control module is called.

I've had this sort of problem on and off as long as I've been using Kubuntu,
though more often I have entries in kcontrol that actually reflect control
modules that are broken - right now "Restricted Drivers" is one such,
though since I don't have any restricted drivers I wasn't worring about it.
