15 Mine will only let me type in 3 numbers. Examples: 300 or 600 It will
16 not accept Gb or anything over 999

24 I renamed that file with .old on the end to test whether that file maybe

42 I did reemerge kbackup and the problem was still the same. I'm not real
43 sure when this started or what updates were done to start this. I'm
44 pretty sure qt has been updated here as well and is even being updated
45 again as I type.
47 I also noticed that when I try to use a saved profile that does a 4Gb
48 slice. it errors out after a couple slices. Sorry, didn't save the
49 error. It won't let me change the slice size on the saved profiles
50 either. I can go down but not up.
52 Weird huh? I'm good at finding these weird problems.
