Well, at least there's one bit of semi-good news. Quick Launch is coming 
back......slowly. That was the one thing I missed most in 4.1. The 
"Quick Launch" widget that someone pointed to wouldn't load because I 
have 8.10-64 and it was only 32 bit. At least that was the error message 
that popped up. In-com-pat-able.
