Just responding to a couple of items, for more details...

What isn't professional about it? I think this issue's a bit subjective. I personally like the colouration of the box. Try not to confuse a 'bug' with a 'personal preference'.

What do you mean by 'shared directory'? Do you mean, using Konqueror to open a file found on another machine's samba share?

Are you using DHCP per chance? That's the only place I can think of for this mystery server to be coming from. What's the IP?

I've responded to this elsewhere, in a couple of places.
