Ok, just to get this straight: it doesn't make sense to pass a shared lib to kwrapper5, but that still leaves the fact that

So what you're saying is that we should be fine (by design) if I remove the bit where kdeinit checks to see if it should use the kdeinit module?
For now I've only been looking at launch(), observed it can be called with a shared library and then ensured that that'd work on OS X too.
I suppose what you are implying is that I should look up the caller path to see where kdeinit verifies if there is a kdeinit module for the tool it has been requested to start, and disable that part?
