	setlocale(LC_ALL, "");

But there's no guarantee that something else won't break in the future. Qt 
is not supported without QCoreApplication. QFile, for instance.

When I looked at the code, I thought it was klauncher (the second phase, 
the one that actually uses Qt). I hadn't realised that kdeinit4 itself 
used Qt code.
