Default Lenny, Swiftfox, Google Desktop Search and KDE 3.5

Two pseudo bugs I found/created and fixed today.

1. Lenny i386, KDE 3.5.1, Swiftfox current(may affect Iceweasel and Firefox)
Copied ~./mozilla from a "used" box to a "fresh" box.
Installed Swiftfox on the fresh box and got the passwords, bookmarks
etc. from the used box.

Problem - a directory in home was mysteriously created (hdd3/Incoming).
Deleting it proved temporary.

Fix - open Swiftfox preferences, select "Save files to", change the
download location to somewhere that exists, select "Always ask...", Close.

2. Lenny i386, KDE 3.5.1, Swiftfox current, Google Desktop Search current
Installed Google Desktop Search.

Problem - in GDS Preferences was able to remove folders from search
list, but not add them using Swiftfox (URL was
file:///var/somethinginteresting). Same using Konqueror.

Fix - purged GDS, in KDE Control Center Components Chooser - changed web
browser back to default (Konqueror), re-installed GDS, opened
Preferences in Konq, copied URL to Swiftfox bookmarks (URL was localhost
gds proxy), changed system default web browser back to Swiftfox.

I broke it and got to keep both pieces! :-D

Cheers all
