OK.... I've had some coffee...still not topped off but better....
It seems that KDE does, for the most part, make proper use of the files
in services. I was confused earlier when I didn't notice that a folder
icon was for https service and not sftp service. There is a separate
issue with the https...but not going to go into it now.
So, it would seem that f11 may have had some hard coded stuff that was
ripped out in f12 and now needs manual configuration.
If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.
