to my knowledge this was only reported from Ubuntu people and after Steve 
reported it on launchpad it got fixed upstream. If other distros are hit by 
this, we should report it there.

Imo it's better for users to upgrade CMake (it's a patch-level release!) then 
to have a workaround in kdevelop and make users update that.
