Indeed, though at first it looks like a dbus timeout (because file open with 
kate breaks as well) all I needed was kate commit 
cd0163d7b956ace0e786a76d8211d06790a2c174 to fix this issue (I also backported 
to 15.08.3). This should really be fixed before 15.12.0 release. It doesn't 
appear to cause any pre-5.17 breakage since it previously only worked by 
kxmlgui overriding it anyway, according to the commit message.
