@Pete - I really do appreciate your helpful comments.  It is people like you 
that keep me interested in software issues "at the sunset of my life" (as my 
even older sister says - "I don't mind dying, just not today - and not 
tomorrow")    :)

@Baz - yes, I've noticed that "find" in the message. Checked the "help" on my 
Konqueror. The "about KDE" indicates that KDE is 4.6.2.  So one notch newer 
than the version where the problem has been fixed.

The suggestion to remove the "compatibility" plugin is certainly worth trying. 
I will try it and report back the result.

@ David - interesting suggestion, but it leaves me wondering how to make use 
of it.  There is every likelihood that there is "some interaction".

Thank you one and all. Greatly appreciated.
