Hold on.. the ok stdguiitem looks like this:
return KGuiItem( i18n( "&OK" ), "button_ok", i18n( "Accept settings" ),
i18n( "If you press the <b>OK</b> button, all changes\n"
"you made will be used to proceed." ) );
Every single ok button does not accept settings. I suggest we remove the
tooltip and what's this for it since they are plain false for a lot of cases.
Sebastian's patch should not be ditched because it's annoying to have tool
tips on Ok buttons - then they shouldn't have tooltips. If a guiitem have
tooltips/whatsthis it is there to be shown and Sebastian's patch makes that
easier to achieve.
My proposal: remove kstdguiitem::ok()'s tooltip and whatsthis and apply
My two cents,
