Whoopsie in KF5::WindowSystem 5.3.0

Hi all,

unfortunately we have an embarrassing bug [1] in KWindowSystem 5.3.0 
which can crash any application making use of KWindowSystem on the X11 
Platform. This is fixed with commit [2]. I recommend to either do a 5.3.1 
release for KWindowSystem with just that commit added or at least that 
distros ship the patch in their packages.

Sorry about that. I still don't understand how it could pass through the CI 
system without failing.
