I think the version I tried was 4.3.1 so it looks like it might be worth 
giving 4.4 a try on my spare partition.

My other problem with upgrading KDE is that I'd like to run both 
versions for a while until I'm happy, dual booting into one of 2 
different FreeBSD systems but using the same /home partition. KMail 
seems to use different directories for storing mail for versions 3 and 
4 so how do I go about being able to access all my mail from both
