I have a further query.  Since I have double-checked the  sources.list and 
find that the backports are commented out, I am still getting a GPG error on 
kubuntu.org breezy release stating that the signature cannot be verified.  
Consequently, I am submitting my [Breezy] sources.list for inspection to see 
if it is b0rked in any way:

Perhaps another pair of eyes...  And I am also wondering about the 7th line up 
from the bottom comment.  Thanks. :-)
