OK, I have an idea what was going on here. I'd changed the way I switch 
QStandardPaths to returning XDG-compliant locations on OS X, with the result 
that qtlogging.ini is now searched for only in "native" locations.

Still, I don't understand why apparently all logging categories are *on* if no 
qtlogging.ini is found, while the opposite appears to be true on Linux ... and 
why the setFilterRules() call in kdevelop/app/main.cpp doesn't deactivate 
debugging output on OS X.
