I finally got a large chunk of free time with which to fix bugs.

* Bugzilla ( http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net ) is now back online, so
bugs can be reported there instead of to this list
* All of the below should be fixed
* kvirc-kde3 is now in the repository

Please let me know if there are other issues/requests for Karmic!  (I
might even consider KDE feature requests...send those to this list).
