After it quit again, I remembered there was a nice 'file a support query' in
Yast2. I thought "how nice" so I went through those screens only to
discover it only makes a support.txt file to use to send an email (to
someone). Not really a useful tool at all.

And the y2log file (because of the above) has far too many records and too
much data in it to see what an error msg might have been. I'll have to
reproduce the quit (which won't take long I am sure)

KDE.... changing from 1280 down to 1024 didn't seem to change it a bit.
And as for problem 3, I just did the L's thru P's adding and deleting
selections, and after having gone through the dependency conflicts and
resolving all of those, Yast2 again quit. Wasted effort.

I'll try 1600
