I hadn't found it - I just didn't look in the right place.  Things have 
become a bit confused here, there might be some minor incompatability 
between 3.8.0, 3.8.1, and 3.8.2, or then again it might just be me.  :-(  
The palette is not behaving as I would expect, I'll worry about it 
after Christmas.

The relevant configuration file seems to be 
~/.claws-mail/toolbar_main.xml  For some reason it seems to have 
picked up "category", something to do with the address book.

Let's see if I can fool it one way or another.
