	That's all I needed to know. It is probably due to the recent kde updates.

	Secondly -- Kuddos to you guys, compiz gets more fantastic with every update. 
On the other list there are occasional quips about some folks not finding 
utility in the interface. I don't know how I would live without it at this 
point. The smooth fluid elegance of the desktop just helps you flow naturally 
from one task to the next. Keep up the great work and I'll continue to not to 
do even worse than cross-posting. But you have to admit, this was a developer 
question ;-)
