Reporting this on the eve before tagging gives us zero opertunity to fix this. I guess disabling kdepim is the only possible solution now.

Did anybody care to look at the bugreport? Thiago kinda promised to
either get it fixed properly for 4.6.0 final or put in a workaround
(most probably the revert of the problematic commit) for the release and
fix it for 4.6.1. 

Having said that, I don't see why an upstream bug should have an
influence of what and when we do the beta. We might hold off rc's or
finals, but a beta is there exactly to find such things. Distro's will
for sure pick up the patch easily, especially if we tell the packagers
via the kde-packagers maillist. As far as I can see the revert is
relatively unproblematic, except printing out warnings in dbus apps.

You will be surprised by a loud noise.
