26 I always Cut or Copy first.  I been doing it that way for many years,
27 even back in the KDE3 days.  As pointed out by Neil, you have to put the
28 mouse pointer in a different place now.  Used to you could put it about
29 anywhere but now it has to be on the left side of the pane where there
30 is a empty space.  That works fine and is workable but have to remember
31 to do it that way now.  Maybe the old behavior will be back with the
32 next upgrade.
