Couldn't say much about kde4, but it should have kedit anyway. It
would be a strange downgrade from 3.5, since I have to say, the kde
printing manager I found much better than gnome-cups-manager.
gnome-cups-manager never sees anything useful printers on networks
when I tried it, but kde print manager (whatever it's called) could
find lots of stuff.
But if the two users are getting different behavior, that's not
consistent with what I tried.
I'm sure kedit was accessing something else, but in any case, it's a
simple test case none-the-less.
