For your definitions of "bypassing" and "failing". I wouldn't call it that 

It's a matter of preference:
- load all widgets from DSOs in a matter of ~10 seconds and have a non-
resizing dialog
- show the dialog immediately with at least the right size for the first shown 
widget or a size hint given by the application and resize later when needed

If you think about it, you'll find there's no other way to achieve a non-
resizing dialog than to discard lazy loading of the KCMs.

Do you really want to do that?
