Description Reindl Harald 2007-11-23 17:24:44 UTC
kwrite has a bug that can make crazy beginners

kwrite /etc/this-does-not-exist.txt
Says nothing, opens an empty editor an may save the file
But if you have misstyped the filename you dont know this

kwrite /boot/grub/grub.conf
Opens as normal user an empty editor instead to 
say there are no permissions

Do not know if this is a kde bug or only in kde of fedora, but sometimes its a
pain - In the first case the apllication should make a request to create the non
existing file or cancel.

In the second case it should tell the user that the file exists but he has no

This is (almost) certainly an upstream kde issue (not a fedora one).  I'd
suggest taking this to bugs.kde.org instead.

Thank you, we'll continue to track this upstream.
