Mark: A follow on: I searched in the CentOS Bugzilla and  also in the
Upstream Bugzilla, for "Evolution". There are about 25 things in CentOS and
119 in Upstream, as of a few minutes ago. I do *not* believe this issue is
mentioned, in either place, at this time. I am temporarily using KDE. I want
to verify whether or not the problem also exists in KDE, before I put the
issue into CentOS Bugzilla. Lanny
