  > Hi, Friedrich, sorry for delay. I think we should push it as is. Since current (wrong) logic of plugin controller we can have execute plugin unloaded with heaptrack loaded in same time. But execute plugin is really needed for plugin work so to don't break strings freeze we can only silently stop heaptrack analysis which is wrong and ugly. I think user should receive normal feedback.

  String freeze holds for the full time in the release branch. What usually is done in such a case where a bug fix really needs to break string freeze, is to ask translators for an exception. Usually a formality, but done at least to show respect to translators and their work.
  Cmp. e.g. https://marc.info/?l=kde-i18n-doc&m=151092571015821&w=2 . Once two or more representatives of language teams have okayed (and no-one objected), exception is granted (that is documented somewhere, but could not find that quickly).
  So if you see no way around, ask the translators now by emailing such a request to kde-i18n-doc at kde.org Will see to start reviewing in parallel then this WE.
