26 Dear Volker Armin,
28 THANK YOU for this tip. Now that I'm using qt-live-kde set with
29 qt-copy USE flag, not only did it fix the problem I had with "holes",
30 but it also fixed performance in nxserver tremendously. KDE apps ever
31 since KDE4, especially Akregator and Konqueror, used to have CRAZY
32 redraws, and now they operate perfectly. It's a nice bonus. :)
34 Thanks again.
