The details are in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55735
This has been fixed in Mandrake 8.0 one year ago, but we still got a
duplicate bug report related to it this year.  And it took a while for
us to figure out that these apparently unrelated bugs were all caused
by the broken GTK+ theme shipped in the default Mandrake distribution.
Not a big deal, but annoying anyway...

Well, there are lots of things that you could do so that GIMP
developers get happier.  For example, I need a new PC.  ;-)

On a more serious side, you could try to convince the KDE developers to
avoid using the name "libmpeg" that conflicts with the original libmpeg
that has been around for quite a while.  This would avoid some
compilation problems on Mandrake systems.

Ça dépend du type d'opérations pratiquées par le médecin...
