I simply had yumex update it all, rebooted and went right back to work, still 
using the filters and folders as setup years ago for kde2.  And its still true 
for 4.2.3, it, with a couple of crashes, has Just Worked(TM).  The crashes are 
always either send related, or my spastic 100cps repeating character keyboard, 
that nothing seems able to tame.
