I talked to one of the Plasma developers on IRC and I understood that this 
will be fixed in 4.3
Right now they are working around a limitation of the date formatting 
capabilities in KDE's locale system and that system will get the necessary 
upgrade in 4.3

I just skipped it since I had a manual backup already and was directly 
upgrading from 3.5 without any 4.x from experimental in between.

The only thing I lost was per-folder identify settings.

I think one of them is the match for the executable in $PATH and one is the 
menu entry (.desktop file)
