The problem is that startDetached doesn't work with environment-variables (see 
its documentation), and I haven't found any other system call that could do 

Right now I'm thinking of just writing a "helper" application consisting of a 
few lines, that turns the "--session" option into an environment variable and 
then calls kdevelop non-detached. A shell-script would work as well, but 
that's not cross-platform.

Greetings, David
