Only for the stats: In the case of updating packages Yast, and im suprised that 
you use this more than zypper, don't touch changed config files because 
opensuse, and every other rpm basesd distribution, do the same as archlinux with 
*.rpmsave and *.rpmnew files.

As i said in the other posting, i don't think that any packager on this planet 
do mistakes with intent but they be even possible because we are all only 
humans. -)

See you, Attila
