Making the constructor that takes a QObjectPrivate private looks wrong to me, 
it needs to be protected for the QItemDelegate subclass in Qt (did you try to 
compile Qt after your change? it should break compilation).

But I'm not in favor of just blindly applying this patch. Can you tell us the 
qt-bugs issue number you got for the problem? What special thing is 
libkdegames doing that this problem shows up only now?
