I see there's a bug almost 10 years old that got fixed :-) How can that even be relevant under KDE 4?

I just tried it in rekonq on kubuntu 11.04 and it's still here. I guess it's code that was transitioned from KDE2->3 and again from KDE3->4. Must be one of the oldest, still valid bugs in existence, no? Anyways, thanks to Dawit Alemayehu for fixing it :-)

Maybe now someone could look at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=268797 before that gets to be 10 years old also?

This bug was reported 2 months ago. Thanks to this comment, someone looked at it today.

It's not on most hated, most severe or most reported. Other than squeaky wheel, is there some reason this bug should precede others?

Because it was actually a server side implementation bug. The fix was actually a workaround and not a bug fix. It took as long as it did to resolve it because the ticket was unfortunately assigned to the wrong product/component bin.
