Thanks both of you for your replies. I actually don't need to use K3b  
in this manner. The reason I posted was because i have not had this  
happen on any of the other 1.4 beta versions I have been testing.  
Something must have changed in the Friday snapshot to cause this to  
happen. Anyway, it will be fun to see what the Monday snapshot brings.
