Yes, very cool if that solved the problem - not something I would 
immediately have thought of, yet once I read the solution I remembered 
that that stuff was there. (I'm certainly glad to have this in my kwlug 
archive to look back to should I run into this myself!)

What's curious though ... those are unusual settings to have to check 
out / they're not the norm. So something schmucked them on you in the 
first place?
