IMO this isn't a Qt bug, I commented on Jira.

I suspect another app isn't implementing the protocol directly, but if we really want to protect ourselves then we should probably ditch the entire session management code from Qt 4 (it's gone in Qt 5, too :)

Is there no hope for getting https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-38599
fixed? This is a really nasty bug that cripples all (newly launched) Qt
applications when it happens. It's listed as P1 and has been reproduced,
but I don't know enough about the bowels of QSessionManager to suggest a

KDE4 is likely to be around for a while yet (e.g. LTS distros) and it
would be good if this can be fixed.
