It it's that big a deal to you, yes!  If every distribution starts
modifying it, because they *do* have an easy to use way to setup
permissions, then pretty soon the wizard code will just be dropped
upstream.  I can garuntee the authors of k3b don't like having to
maintain that anymore than you like it being there :-)

I just downloaded it, seems to work fine.  Of course, I have all the
config still from the karolina version, so I didn't even see the wizard
again :-)  The only thing of note is that it appears to be compiled with
some sort of debugging turned on (?).  At least, it is extremely verbose
when started from the command-line.  And while I *like* my apps with
debugging enabled, to make better bug reports, I know that isn't
generally the "ship" state.

I must take this chance to say thank you, I was starting to really hate
