Oh... ok. That means I will have to fix the rest of KNotes as well.

Whoa. It's in ICalFormat for about a year already... Must have missed this 
commit when I was in Melbourne. Ok, will remove that stuff, thanks!

Good catch, why didn't I notice? :) Yes, it's even included in my previous 
mail, just above the backtraces: PID 2482 and 2483 are both kio_files. So 
yes, for some reason file_copy() is called twice, I have absolutely no idea 
why. And usually it really is called only once, that's why it's so hard to 
trigger this bug (just verified). Too bad that the backtraces don't include 
KNotes' methods :(

Hmm, do you know why exactly this doesn't work?
