Running OpenSuse 11.1 and Kde 4.1. Every time I post to Usenet, Knode (version presents a pop-up warning that one or more lines of the post exceeds 80 characters.

As I type the message, I can see the column count on the bottom bar count the characters until it wraps and it never goes above 80 characters per line. I've even manually counted each line!

It's not the end of the world but it's starting to p1ss me off.
