Great - right on the money. Thanks.

The fix/update was requested in 2007, but only implemented in Feb15, 
which should roll into the next KDE release

I did have a google without discovering this - is that a "mis-google" :-)

BTW, am running Linux Mint 17 - KDE, which is KDE v4.13.2. - will need a 
later version to get this change.
