With all due respect to the KDE developers, i doubt that they tested this fix on 86 and 64, with every single Linux disro that can run KDE, with all the kernels and with all the major programs that actually use the Konqueror's engine for accessing internet. There is no way to do this in 90 minutes and btw there is no one to pay for this.
Oh, and how many test scenarios did they run to ensure that not only they fixed this, but also have not broken any other functionality?
