Review request for KDE Base Apps.


Changed icon argument parsing to const ref.
Added icon support for fallback KPassivePopup using KIconLauncher.
Could not test fallback, though, since nothing happens when I close plasma-desktop. It used to display the KPassivePopup then. Neither with 4.6, nor trunk, nor my patch it does anything.
Plasma passive notification works fine.


Since I use kdialog a lot, I wanted it to be able to set an icon for passive Plasma notifications as well.
I saw that the icon was hardcoded to dialog-information and tried to enable it to parse the --icon command line argument and pass it to the dbus call that triggers the notification.
I could not test the patch however, since I do not (yet) have a full development environment or its dependencies, and I do not even know if this is the right approach, but I hope you can have a look at it.

Diffs (updated)
