Do you mean upgrade literally? Or, are you referring to a move from SUSE 9.1
to 9.3 in general? In other words, do you think people that do a fresh install
of SUSE 9.3 on a Toshiba laptop will have similar problems?

We all know what 'upgrades' can do to our systems -- in relation to fresh,
clean installs -- especially when you consider a years' worth of upgraded code
(9.1 to 9.3 = one year).

I'm on two SUSE mailings lists and while I've heard some of the usual 'new
software' complaints, this is the first time I've heard anyone complain about
gtk-qt-engine causing any (read all) Mozilla products NOT to work. I have
gtk-qt-engine-0.6cvs20050229-4 installed and Firefox works just fine. And, I
have a Toshiba laptop. Maybe I just missed those threads...

Is this just FUD???
