i've now been using 4.2 for  > 1 day  & have had no problems.
there are a few small things developers mt like to hear re.

(1) session management: in the session i asked to save,
i had Lynx & Mutt running, one in an Xterm, the other in Konsole.
when i restarted, neither was running, but there was an extra Konsole
on a desktop where there had been no terminal in the previous session.
no compliant (of course), but it wb nice if the session manager cd start
applications running on terminals, not just the raw terminals
(AFAIR KDE also falls short on this point).

(2) desktop menu: in the generated part, there are  2  lines
'gwenview' & 'konqueror' w submenus 'Konqueror - set as tiled wallpaper -
set as wallpaper' & 'Browse with Gwenview - Rename with &krename -
Rename with &KRename': again no complaint, but something is not quite right.

(3) ditto: u 'Settings', there is a line 'instellingen Iconbox':
the 1st word looks like German, but my dictionary doesn't know re it:
presumably this is a typo of some kind; also, it does seem unnecessary
in a submenu called 'Settings' to add the word 'Settings' to so many items.

(yes, i have looked at the menu config file, wh has excellent notes)
