Hello, Rahul
Thanks again for your help.  I have looked a little further into this,
and at this moment in time, this whole thing looks to be well beyond my
abilities.  About all I have to offer that is of any use is the fact
that I love Fedora Core, and I love KDE, and I am willing to use my
system to do whatever someone who knows what they are doing says might
help fix this problem.  But I don't want anyone to feel the need to
babysit me on this.  If someone will volunteer to kind of be my guiding
hands, I will gladly implement whatever they tell me to do.
In closing, I apologize if I have wasted your time.  I really do hope
that KDE will do anything that they should be doing to fix this.
