My bad.  I skimmed the start of that thread, decided it didn't 
interest me as I don't run kde any more, and skipped it thereafter.

Yes, I get just the same...

How embarrassing -- I should go to bed at night and do these things in 
the early morning instead -- seems I cut-and-pasted everything, 
including the double quotes round the line
   eval `/usr/bin/lessfile`
in ~/.bashrc. Stands out a mile when you re-open the file.

Sorry all.  Pilot error, again.
