 While this KWin change is right, since there's no need to use kdeglobals when 
writing KWin rules, I still see this as a KConfig bug and a regression from 
KDE3. A dangerous feature without real purpose, at best. Since I can 
explicitly say I really want to write to kdeglobals when I want to do so, 
what exactly is the point of doing this automatically, other than having 
kdeglobals again nuked by something?
