Re: Starting programs from menu doesn't always work

I also see problems like this. Latest is that the sound mixer goes away. 
Normally it is docked on the taskbar but now it will disappear and it is not 
possible to restart it - I must exit/restart kde.

I also noted that kmail has a few hickups. I know there was unread mail in 
debian-kde yet it didn't show it until I clicked on that folder...
