This will be fixed in kdelibs-4.2.0-11.fc10, now building in Koji.
This was fixed upstream back on January 29! We need more efficient ways to
identify serious bugs such as this and their fixes so we can get the fixes
backported in a timely manner. Having KNode completely broken a month after
upstream fixed the problem is not acceptable!
Some questions we should ask ourselves:
* Why was this not caught before 4.2.0 got pushed to testing? The update was
only pushed to testing on February 5, if we had known about the issue and
the fix we could have fixed it right away.
* Why was this not caught when 4.2.0 was still in testing? The update was
only pushed to stable on February 13, if we had known about the issue and
the fix we could have fixed it before the update hit stable.
* Once the bug was finally noticed (after the update hit stable), why did it
take so long to find out that this is already fixed upstream and the
revision? (Or if anybody already knew about it, why didn't you backport the
fix or ask us to backport it? KNode being entirely unusable sure deserves
an immediate fix!)
(This message sent from KNode 3.5.10 on F9, which was thankfully not
affected by this mess.)
