Thanks Ben, I tracked it down. It's a little panel app called Klipper. I
can't believe I didn't think of that. Oh well, problem solved. That's one
of my beefs with KDE. It's a great desktop, but a lot of the little apps
that go along with it leave something to be desired. They seem to impose
things on you.
I'm thinking it might be time to try a different distro. Mandrake is nice if
you're just getting into Linux, but at this point I'd like a little more
control over just what's included in my system. I'm thinking either Debian
or Gentoo. Any thoughts?
