this doesn't sound like a great solution since it means not only a lot of work 
and testing in our own repos (with a high risk of missing something), but it 
will affect all third parties as well (which we can't guarantee will notice or 
provide a fix on their own). a fix, even if it is a (well documented with 
comments ;) work-around, in KConfigDialogManager would probably be more 
valuable as a result.
