The file open dialog is missing some preset places

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)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start okular or kate
Observe that the default links are missing.
The default places links should always be there.
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.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
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.
