Of course. My post wasn't intended to blame you for not finding it. It was 
about Information. I used questionmarks for it seeed somewhat strange to me 
that someone fiddles aroud with config-files while not seeing the IMHO much 
simpler solution at hand.

You're right, but I didn't say that. I said you can create a custom entry and 
then enter any URL and therefore any protocol you like.

You're using the _preliminary_ packages from alioth? Just wanted to make 
sure.. Besides that it's pretty common that changing KDE releases sometimes 
isn't that smooth and requires some, errr, manual intervention.

Well, you might as well have kept this somewhat shorter and wrote a bug report 
if it's really that serious to you.

And again. My post wasn't inteded to call you silly, so no need for defending 
yourself. If I got you in the wrong spot, it wasn't meant to be, but after 
all, this is a ML. Somtimes you just keep it short to save time and not 
because you're an unfriendly or arrogant moron.
