Can you duplicate this? What happens if you run "kbuildsycoca4" from
konsole? Does the menu still not refresh? PBIs by default run this after
an install, and its *supposed* to refresh the menu a few seconds later.
(It does here anyway)

This is fixed in the PBI format, but we haven't had a thunderbird update
since I corrected it. It'll be in the next PBI of thunderbird :)

This is normal behavior for the moment. I'm still trying to find a good
solution to detect / restore desktop icons during an upgrade.

Yea, that's vmware specific I believe.

I can confirm this here, the printer is working, but the GUI test option
doesn't function. I'll look into this next week, see where the problem is

I've seen this as well in all FF3 versions. Whats weird is that
occasionally it works, but I think that depends on the website font being
printed. It's been bugging me also, I'll take a look into it soon. It's
most likely an issue with the FF3 port / PBI itself, not the system.

Humm, I'm not sure if this is a bug in KDE 4.2.2, or if it was changed
that way purposely. (Maybe key strokes are used to navigate by default
instead of typing now) You may want to check bugs.kde.org for that one :)
