I will add some more debug messages for this, so maybe we can find out
whats going on wrong.

current plasma-workspace git version will be shipped with plasma 5.3
so I think this is fine when it will be released, also commit that
introduced this dep already mentions the required plasma-workspace

   For that session file to work it will require recent plasma-workspace
