The error message comes from dvcsjob.cpp in kdevplatform.git:
DVcsJob::slotProcessError( QProcess::ProcessError err )
FailedToStart means :
"The process failed to start. Either the invoked program is missing, or you
may have insufficient permissions to invoke the program."
PS: Haven't seen this issue myself (or in bug reports).
