yep, for instance that. As I have never inspected that framework any further I suspect that's
the only executable which can check the frameworks proper function, right?

That could be, because the KDE Wallet application is probably going to use the kwallet
framework at some stage and only then that GUI will get hit by the paths issue.

OK, I see. Good. So, I'll see whether your patches apply cleanly and the test application
will run seamlessly without errors.
