Redirecting to debian-kde where it's more appropiate. Please follow up in that

Hi Werner! Interestingly enough I haven't seen this behaviour on my proxy-
impaired network. Non the less I'm going to check tomorrow again.

I don't know for sure it this is a KDE or Qt bug, but I think the best way to 
solve this will be reverting the change if needed.

I'll ask the KDE maintainers to see what they think.

Kinds regards and thanks a lot for your feedback, Lisandro.
