Hi Jesper,

at the moment I just don't find the time to do something at KimDaBa.
Sorry.

If you find some time to improve what I've done, I'll be happy.

I'll now answer your questions.

If it fits better into KimDaBa, okay!

I think you're right. There is just one simple reason:
I just was happy that I got it the way I've done it: It was the first time I 
was working an a linux/KDE program. So I'm quite happy with it.
Okay, I didn't know how to have the context menu in one list box and inform 
the other listboxes to change as well. For me this over configurable version 
was just the easiest way to implement it!

If I'm right, it was me who wrote about two icons.
It's just the same thing like mentioned above: I was glade to make it run like 
I did it. Thats all!

By for this evening and hoping there is not to much work left for sorting,
Reimar
