Thanks for feedback. I have also discovered part of the black magic
recipe requires me to do 2 more things.
1) kill and turn off avahi-dameon service.
2) kill off something called nm-applet - i cannot find where this is
started (as the logged in kde user not root). It is not visible
anywhere on the KDE task bar so not sure how to shut off - but a
killall seems to work for now.
Then the various aditional cauldren stirring outlined earlier have
worked a total of 2 times now!
Best - and looking forward to fixes!!
