please consider backporting the following commit to your 4.5.0 packages:
It fixes a total freeze of kded if the network:/ kio-slave is first invoked.
The kio-slave calls its kded module networkwatcher via D-Bus, kded loads the
module on demand (as configured since 4.5), but the module itself also does a
D-Bus call in its initialisation which seems blocked by a mutex hold by kded
due to the D-Bus call which triggered the load of the module initially ->
Sorry about the late notification. I am short of time and with messed up
computers currently, so my short testing missed to see this in time, and it
seems nobody else who tested the network:/ kio-slave was ambitious enough to
report this. Will also blog about this problem.
