Ha! Then there is less to gripe about?? <cackles hugely> When I last did
a full install with FC7, I was having an anxiety attack while using
gnome. When I finally got KDE installed again I had that warm fuzzy
contented feeling you get after sex. I was home and I got made happy as
well! But really, I didn't notice it missing as I will trim and middle
post within the original text anyway. So, where the cursor starts off is
no major deal to me. I'm gonna put it where I want it.
