Normal CI service has already been restored.

Execution of KIO's tests has been disabled as they very reliably leave
behind a kioslave5.exe process which cannot be terminated except by human
intervention (at least not using the tools i've tried using). This latent
process causes not only the KIO build to fail at the end, but also causes
all other builds assigned to that builder to fail until manual intervention
takes place.

It is not known what KIO is doing that causes this issue - however I have a
suspicion it is something to do with threads.
