Illustration of missing places links

Description of problem:
The file-open dialog in kde has a list of shortcuts on the left-hand side to various common locations, such as Home, Network, Root and Trash.

However since some upgrade these common locations are no longer listed. I can go to my home directory by clicking on its disk partition, but the home link itself is missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
plasma-workspace-5.4.1-3 and 5.4.2 (from updates-testing)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start okular or kate
2. File->Open

Actual results:
Observe that the default links are missing.

Expected results:
The default places links should always be there.

Additional info:
I have attached a screenshot illustrating the issue. It shows a dolphin window in the background with the default Home, Network, Root and Trash links present. In the foreground I have opened okular and ran File->Open

Note that the Home link is not in the shortcut list and that my disk partition is highlighted instead as current place.

I have also observed that sometimes these same places go missing from Dolphin. I don't see a pattern or direct cause. Closing all dolphin windows and restarting dolphin usually solves the issue.

Comment 2 info@kobaltwit.be 2017-05-14 10:26:44 EDT
I'm terribly late with my reaction. However this is still happening on Fedora 25 (and continued to happen in all releases in between.

I still haven't found what is causing this exactly.
