Review request for kde-workspace and Oswald Buddenhagen.

Bugs: 254430

Repository: kde-workspace


Entering the Login Screen module from systemsettings adds system-wide values (from system kdeglobals) to user values in ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals.
Thus, lot of user settings are lost (font, style, colors, default Web Browser, ...).

Opening backgroundrc (line 306) with KConfig::SimpleConfig OpenFlag (like for kdmrc at line 285) fixes this issue. This fix was proposed by Pulfer in bugreport 254430#c16.
