	Testing on kspread, kpresent and karbon14 went much better. Ironically, 
kspread had no problem with the text file that cratered kword. However, there 
is another wicked little issue with those apps. For some reason they each 
cause flashes and screen artifacts with my laptop and radeonhd driver. I have 
been using my laptop near continually for several weeks with arch and the 
radeonhd driver and the screen/display was never a freaky (for lack of better 
words) as it was with the koffice apps open. I have closed them to compose 
this messagee and all is well again.

	Reality rears its ugly head:

	KDE3 + KDE4 Runtime Apps = Nothing but trouble....
