The goal of the komp*.diff patches are to hide the xsession pid message when komp is not in use. Refer to bug reports 645, 880, 887. I have not toyed with them for a few weeks and have them disabled in my builds.

Regarding those two patches, today I finally got around to creating similar patches for every single module. The first patch is related to bug report 892 and the latter is related to bug report 660, which we discussed several days ago. I hope in the next day or three to push all of those patches. I will provide list memebers a warning before I do that.

If only I knew C++ better. I get frustrated when I know what I want to do and can't get there because of noob C++ skills. All of these efforts would be completed by any person with C++ skills.
