i don't think it is broken. but unlike in kde3, the controller is not
ref-ed from kapp. the installing and uninstalling of the sig handlers
will cause problems when mixing with qprocess and possibly other things
is not done very carefully. it might well be that your hack is the only
realistically applicable fix.

you are supposed to use the redirection functions.
if that's not enough, override setupChildProcess() and do everything
yourself - but that works only on unix, obviously.
