Thanks for that - one more thing regarding skype and dependency
packages. I installed qt4 because I thought skype needed it - however,
should I now remove qt4 and perhaps start again with the static version
of skype (Niki Kovacs email 3 Dec) - if so, do I need to reinstall any
other packages to 'restore' the system?
