This is a really weird issue. Sometimes when I want to reboot, shutdown or log
out ('f' -> Leave -> Log out / Restart / Shut Down) nothing happens (the count
down messagebox doesn't appear) . Lock, Sleep and Hibernate are okay. There
are no error messages in .xsession-errors, /var/log/messages
/var/log/Xorg.0.log, /var/log/kdm.log and/or /var/log/secure.
When log out etc. fails authentication more generally seems to fail. e.g. I
tried to change the shutdown command (System Settings -> Login Screen ->
Shutdown). After pressing the Apply button, a messagebox appeared telling that
authentication failed. In /var/log/secure the following messages appeared:
May 14 23:17:12 ps-1866 polkitd(authority=local): Registered Authentication
Agent for unix-session:/org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Session1 (system bus name
:1.55 [/usr/libexec/kde4/polkit-kde-authentication-agent-1], object path
/org/kde/PolicyKit1/AuthenticationAgent, locale en_US.UTF-8)

preferences-system] (owned by unix-user:martin)
The above issue happens both in up to date Fedora 16 and 17.
Have anyone else seen this? Any ideas how I can get more information on this

This bug report explains why inline renaming is no longer possible in
Dolphin (and konqueror too it seems):
They claim it will be back in the 4.9 KDE and/or Dolphin 2.1. Will F16
eventually upgrade to these or will it require >=F17?
Opinion: Dropping features and confusing users in mid-stream and then
promising to bring them back is not good practice.
Got kde-4.8.3 f16/f17 builds in kde-testing, and queue'd for
updates-testing as well.
For f17, there's a chance we can ship with that (instead of 4.8.2),
assuming we can some good feedback. (else, it'll just be available as an
Test test test, and enjoy.
I was trying out xpra, but it seems to have been bitten by a kde bug. The bug
is mentioned at the bottom of this page:
It seems kde needs a patch for this to work. Any chance of seeing this in
