Arrgh, you are right: It's a 1.4.2 on a Suse 12.1 running as terminal 
server, and it's displayed on my terminal in my office running under KDE 
3.5. So it's somewhat exotic, but never failed as to what is shown and 
what is printed, especially when showing PDFs.

I will make a copy for my laptop at home, so I have a reference. Report 
is made on Monday! :)

And see my mail to Owen Cook with the project attached.
