I don't know about the printer but the font is definitely different after I 
upgraded last night.  It looks gnome-y right now.  I had it set on 120 dpi 
because it was too small at 96.  Lemme set it back . . . .

. . . Yup, that was it.  I restarted Kontact and it looks a lot better at this 
size.  Just like it was before at 120 dpi.  That seems to be fixed.

I had a bug where kontact would not completely quit when it was minimized and 
then closed from the system tray.  That is gone now.  It starts a lot quicker 
too.  I did get a bad upgrade on the graphics but a purge and install of the 
package nvidia-glx-185 fixed it immediately.  Everything else works just like
