KStandardDirs and documentation on trunk

I'm trying to work out what technical things need to be done to make sure
the toolchain for creating/viewing documentation is ready in KDE 4. The
first problem I've noticed is that the help:/ ioslave calls
KGlobal::dirs()->resourceDirs("html") to find out where the documentation
is stored, and gets an empty QStringList back. A few other people have
confirmed this on different systems. I didn't understand the KStandardDirs
code enough to try to fix this, but if I manually
insert "KDEDIR/share/doc/HTML" into the QStringList, the ioslave works
almost perfectly.

Is this a known problem? Is it on anyone's todo list?
