Using 1.3.4 is going to be problematic. Bugs being fixed are in 
1.3.5svn, so unless you want to advance to 1.3.5svn, you'd better go 
back to

1.3.5+ uses qt4, so you have to be able to make that jump (you can have 
qt3 and qt4 both at the same time).

You could try saving items in 1.3.4 to the Scrapbook, then installing and pull them in from the Scrapbook. You will still have to 
remake the Styles.
