Well, KDE-4.3.3 has escaped and I have a long list of little things

on this list to try to see that they are actually bugs in KDE, see that
they are reported, and possibly fix some of them.
I have been told by the moderator of this list that I have bugs because
my distro is Linux From Scratch [my tag line says 'mostly' because I
started by installing enough of Fedora to get it to boot and I still
have a few RPMs installed). I do not think that that is the case, but
still I would like to have someone with KDE-4.3.x installed from
binaries to confirm that they have the same problem.
Well, even if it is, the source tarballs are the only thing kde ships
directly -- they rely on the various distributions to provide their own
compatible binpkgs. Thus, if it's a bug because due to compiling and
installing from source, it's far more directly a kde bug than if it's due
to some change the distribution made themselves.
So such from-source bugs very much belong on the kde lists, if anything
does. It could in fact be persuasively argued, were one to wish to, that
it's the binary distribution folks who need to find the their own
distribution lists to posts their bugs on.
But I think it rather better policy to say come-one, come-all, if it's a
problem involving kde, post here, and we'll try to help. Perhaps we can,
perhaps we can't, but we'll try, which is after all the case with any
such lists or forums one might post to, distribution, upstream DE, or
upstream individual package, where such individual forums/lists exist.
Which binaries, whose compile? I have Slackware's KDE-4.3.2 installed.
Unlike some of the more "popular" distros Slackware is built vanilla
with no changes/patching of upstream source unless absolutely necesary.
So yeah, post the bugs, and we'll see what happens. Several have said
