Comment 1 Dr. Tilmann Bubeck 2012-03-20 13:47:31 UTC
The following workaround has been found upstreams in the references KDE bug tracker:

"FYI Gentoo has resolved this successfully by reverting kdm commit 720b0bfe5fab7142b9683f329b75cf2951b95c8e"

Comment 2 Dr. Tilmann Bubeck 2012-09-07 06:07:12 UTC
Fixed upstreams with KDE 4.8.5 and therefore also fixed in Fedora since KDE 4.8.5.
