and then the updater goes away.. it appears every time I reboot, but I
don't know where to even find the items it's referencing .. I can, of
course still do online updates via yast but the little updater items or
install via that item is dead.

Just for kicks I uninstalled and reinstalled the updater, w/ no joy..
other than this I'm happy w/ just about everything I have poked at so

As you mention you're using KDE, you might want to use the KDE updater
instead, which doesn't require ZMD, and should free you of these
problems. Deselect the "Enterprise package management" pattern and
ensure the "openSUSE package management" pattern is selected (see and log
out and back into kde and you should have the KDE openSUSE updater
instead of zen-updater.
