If konqueror is configured to see quicktime movies with the kaffeine plugin and you go to the apple site (for example, if you see this cute movie http://www.apple.com/trailers/disney/poohs_heffalump_movie.html ) and you close the browser before the end of the movie, you get a "signal 11" error message and konqueror crash.

If konqueror is configured to use kpdf as the default viewer for pdf, and you open any pdf file (for example http://www.deas.harvard.edu/courses/cs121/handouts/Godeldoc.pdf), the fonts are very small and not readable. I did not found the way to increase font size. I get similar problem with the acroread plugin into konqueror. kghostview seems to render pdf file better in konqueror.
My hard drive (hda1) is formatted to be a reiser filesystem. I am using the 2.6.10-5-386 kernel from ubuntu and allmost everything works well. The only problem probably related to this kernel is that, when booting I get a message saying;
- VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hda1 this message is followed by a delay of about 5 seconds. After this delay, the system show normal message like mounting a tmpfs over /dev and then the boot continues without problem.
My /etc/fstab contain reiserfs for this partition and I cannot figure out what is wrong. I think this is similar to bug #2100, but there is no solution or indication.

As silly as it might seem, adding a "* * * * * root /bin/sync" to /etc/crontab increased robustness of my filesystems (ext3) an order of magnitude (perhaps sync also flushes on-drive cache or maybe just perception?) particularly when my 3 yo kid isn't quite prepared to differentiate a PC from a TV.
