Kopete Bug 59080 (Kopete does not keep toolbar settings)

This is another disappointing bug in Etch (this one following the Kontact Calendar Summary View bug).

At least this wasn’t release critical. I still think the Kontact bug was very critical and that the summary plug-in should have been removed from Etch. Or just fixed.
