Does anyone else have problems deleting images not on disk?

|    |    | delete.  That tells me that 1 image is selected.  When I click

|    |    | display now have the same image name.

|    |    I tried with the images from the demo application, and that worked

|    |    Would your images happen to have some non us letters in them, and
|    |    would you lately have happend to upgrade to a new Linux version,
|    |    which now encode file names in UTF?
|    |
|    | Nope.  I am using a modern distribution (SUSE 9.1), but I don't create
|    | any filenames with non-ASCII characters.
|
|    Does it also happen for the demo app?
|
| Yes, it does.  What I did was:
|
| [3(root)|||{!1}<rlk-mobile>/home/rlk/sandbox/kdepim]
| # cd /opt/kde3/share/apps/kimdaba/demo/
| [3(root)|||{!2}<rlk-mobile>/opt/kde3/share/apps/kimdaba/demo]
| # rm -f img00*
|
| and then run the demo.  When I chose Display Images Not On Disk, I was
| unable to delete the 9 images found.
How do you run the demo?
try getting the above images in place, and run
1) kimdaba -demo
2) exit the app, and rm some images from /tmp/kimdaba-demo-<username>
3) run kimdaba -c /tmp/kimdaba-demo-<username>

Can you delete images on disk btw?
