Hi Thomas and others,

My patch, based on Thomas' idea for handling the stale-cookies problem in
Dr Konqi, has now been backported to the Applications/14.12 branch and
forward-ported to master in KF5's plasma-workspace (thanks, Hrvoje).

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=337742 has been closed and marked
as "Fixed in 14.12.1".

If I understand correctly, this change will be tagged in Applications/14.12 on
8 January 2015 and released on 13 January 2015 in Applications/14.12.1.
Please can someone confirm this, i.e. Have I done the pushes correctly?

Now that the holiday season is closing, please could somebody give the
change a quick test on Linux and KDE 4?  See details below.  My own tests
on Apple OS X were inconclusive.  I was unable to reproduce the problem
with stale cookies.
