I actually tried that, and didn't see any related packets. I then
tried strace, and saw KMM sending a dbus message (including the related
URL). I then used "dbus-monitor --session" and it looks to me like KMM
is handing the URL to some KDE utility or service, and I don't see
anything I can interpret until the failure message is returned. I'm
guessing that KDE service has a stale or corrupt cache. When I return
after the weekend, I'll just log out/log in and see if that resets dbus
and the KDE stuff. I don't think it's worth the effort it will
probably take to fully debug and find out the actual cause.
