    During that intense period, were you using Konq? They're trying to
    determine if this is a Konq specific bug or can happen with other
    browsers as well.

    I have only ever received these error messages in Konqueror over the last four years. (Like the ladybird that appears when there is an HTML syntax error, I had assumed it was a Konqueror feature rather than a bug!)

    What puzzled me about their sudden appearance on the forum was that I had been logging on to the forum for over a year when the first one appeared. The other instances had occurred at various times over the previous four years normally the first time I logged on to a site.

    In this case, the error messages coincided with the appearance of a slightly different font as well - so I wondered if it was an alternative portal.

    There is an option to override the messages which I am happy to use; but it was the sudden appearance of the error messages together with the subtly different prompt that prompted me to report it.

    The fact that the error messages come and go also suggested that it might be something to do with a particular server.

    Maybe the best thing to do is to leave it for how and report back if there is a major change in the behaviour, e.g. they disappear again completely.

    Thanks for that info, will update the bug with it - if it's just Konq,
    that probably will help narrow it down a bit (as well as helping diagnose
    - much harder to diagnose if it isn't happening with FF but that's what
    they're testing with - I'm guessing).
