The buglog says it "might" be closed in 3.1.4.  To me, that's not the same
as "believe"ing its closed.  The developers reference says:

 "Debian users will sometimes report bugs that are not specific to Debian
 to our bug tracking system. You have to forward these bug reports to the
 upstream developers so that they can be fixed in a future upstream

And also:

 "you should not close the bug until the package which fixes the bug has 
 been accepted into the Debian archive"

KDE is a large and complex set of packages, but that doesn't change the 
rules of the BTS, IMO.
