To answer your question about whether it's in kdelibs or Qt: it's in kdelibs.
// Delay in ms before delayed popup pops up
#define POPUP_DELAY 500
at the top of ktoolbarbutton.cpp

Now, what I'd like to ask is:
Qt has a configurable delay for "drag time" - it's the minimum time you need
to click somewhere before it starts a drag. Isn't this quite similar?
Would it be ok if we used the configurable dragtime in KToolbarButton,
instead of adding yet another configuration option?
