There is one other use case in konqmainwindow but this actionCollection is
getting added to a KonqBookmarkMenu somehow utilizing a kmenu and ... i got

Question is. Should it work without addAssociatedWidget(). If not i would
propose to add this requirement to the documentation of KActionCollection.
