Looks like my patch in klauncher.cpp is not using the socket correctly.

I should not try to code blind… :-)  I must try and get Frameworks and Qt 5
running on my Macbook.

That message comes from kinit.cpp, launcher_died(), called from
handle_requests().  There seems to be an error-return from
handle_klauncher_request(), which has received an error-return from
read_socket().  The latter is the function which actually reads the socket.

If I overlooked anything obvious, please let me know.  Otherwise, it's
back to the drawing-board for me… :-)

Cheers, Ian W.
