Works here.

Known problem due to the differences woody <-> sarge/sid with vorbis. Use 
those symlinks.

Remember, k3b is made directly out of the CVS sources whenever I see something 
done :-) so you could report problems to the author (Sebastian Trueg) so he 
can fix them easier.

I just built the package as-is, no look at testing. That's what you're up for 
:-) I'll have a look when I have time to do so.

I want to add the first one anyway, the second - haven't seen it but I'll have 
a look.

Change the code, recompile. The listview on the left is the default now which 
is better than the former iconview when you have many users.
