I left it there because I had no idea if there were valid usecases for 
calling kDebug() after the global destructors had been run. (Read: 
calling *from* a global destructor of something)

I'm interested in knowing what those frames above (2 to 5) are. 2 is 
probably kDebug(int) or KDebug::operator()(int).

Oh, wait, I do have the line number from the call... :-) I'll update the 
code but leave the noisy output for a while. Let's see if the usecases 
are valid first.
