A similar behaviour is also present in 4.3:
Clicking a program shortcut or using KRunner keeps the system busy a little, 
but nothing happens (though no error dialog, just the program never 
appearing/running). Redoing the action usually results in an almost instant 
reaction as called for.

No, I never reported this, seemed so obvious :P
