KStatusBar and showing temp messages

I'm seeing a problem at the moment with KStatusBar, and wonder if was actually 
a bug or maybe it's a misunderstanding by me.

The game I'm working on uses the statusbar->showMessage(i18n("Temp text goes 
here")) call to display a message temporally. However the message never gets 

When i initially setup the statusbar I created the items with calls like :

statusbar->insertItem("This is a temp",1,1);

So I took a look at the KStatusBar code for this method and see that it's 
calling QStatusBar's addPermanentWidget method. I also see that 
KStatusBar->insertPermanentItem() is also calling addPermanentWidget.
So I was wondering if KStatusBar->insertItem() should be calling addWidget() 


P.S. Could you CC me on any replays as I'm not subscribed to this list.
