yes does.

users are now able to open kde desktop without getting dropped
back out.

still no idea of cause, but for now system will be running with
x11 downgraded.

being that your friend and i are only 2 reported cases of problem,
i do not feel that it is worth filing a bug report.

tho i am having a problem with my mid tower having dropped in
speed after fresh install of 6.8, it may be because it is about
10 yro and problem is with hardware. not something i am going to
worry about for not because i will be retiring it next month with
an amd quad system.

i am most appreciative for your reply and solution.


peace out.
