Using Reply-To-All as you did, too.

I don't use bluethooth anyway, but just for in case I will install 
bluedevil. Thanks.

Regarding myself nevermind, I don't think I even use this. I even don't 
know what it does.

I think I need some blacklist entries, see:


Without those I click on something Plasma related and nothing happens 
until after a minute has gone by. Combined with high load caused by X 
process. Not always, but often enough to be really annoying.

Other than that KDE SC 4.5.1 is really quite snappy. I think its a bit 
faster overall. Maybe thats a result of the KSharedDataCache thing or how 
it was called.

I don't get the new activities concept tough. I had one different activity 
per desktop, which doesn't seem to be possible anymore. Instead now I can 
select "different widgets on each desktop" and changing an activity works 
globally. But then I do not get what I should use activities for at all. I 
now use one activity with four differently configure desktops and be done 
with it. At least that zooming activity user interface that lagged so much 
and had lots of bugs is gone for good now.

However I will follow up on this on the bug reports I created regarding 
activities in KDE 4.4 or create new ones - upstream.
