I think he was asking you to post your preferences and sources.list files.
Presumably to check if there was a mis-configuration in one of them which
could have caused the trouble you you were having.
Ah yes, I certainly do understand working on something far too long when I
should have been sleeping. :-)

Err, that's what I did, join in and ask.

To me your question appeared to be threaded to a question about XFS from
Robert Edmonds rather than starting a new topic and thread for your question.

I immediately see it's from you by looking at the Sender column in KMail.
I'm pretty sure most email clients could filter (for redirection) on your name
in the From header as well as in the Subject header. I know both KMail and
Thunderbird can do that.

Probably best to keep it on the list, in case anyone else is interested. By
the way, you still haven't said what it was that resolved the problem you
asked about in your original question, your not seeing the KDE backports.
That's the part I could learn from, the resolution of the problem.
