Thanks to pahli_bar in IRC for the hint.

It was actually commit 1.5 to kdelibs/kdeui/kwhatsthismanager.cpp
which broke that feature:

   kdedev-[SCR]@p15159004:~/src/kde/kdelibs/kdeui> cvs diff -r1.4 -r1.5 kwhatsthismanager.cpp
   -    if (e -> type () == QEvent::ChildInserted) {
   +    if (o == this && e -> type () == QEvent::ChildInserted) {

putting back the line as 

   if (e -> type () == QEvent::ChildInserted) {

restored the feature for me.

I'll use it now to mail myself suggestions for including missing 
WhatsThis items.
