Yeah, I guess you can just ignore the statement I shouldn't have said
that in the first place without getting some background on the issue
first :)

I doubt I'll have the time this week or weekend, but hoped that given
the "circuumstances" where this happens (i.e. only multimedia keys)
somebody familiar with the codebase would instantly go "ah, yeah I know

Another issue is that kded can so easily be brought down and thus half
of the desktop doesn't work anymore. That shouldn't happen, either kded
should automatically restart or there should be some kind of message
saying "Hey, here's a list of things that might have just broken your
desktop, care to disable any of them?" With a list of kded components.
Or is that just too crazy an idea? (Of course ideally the components
should be fixed, but still its bad to ship something which breaks the
desktop so easily)
