Ignore that. I had forgotten that kdirwatch has builtin support
for watching for non-existent files. I'll fix it so that it adds a watch
on the file after the file gets deleted, so that it can be told about
it being recreated. Then the kcm will need no change, and I'll still
be able to get rid of the crashing code :)
