Bug#602088: konqueror: kfmclient debug messages cause havoc in 3rd party calls

FYI, related to this bug, there was discussion in Debian devel mailing
list about the use of debug essages by default.

    If you're not specifically debugging, it's useless noise that masks
    more important stuff.  Just add a --debug option or a DEBUG
    environment variable and you then have a well-behaved program rather
    than one which spews irrelevant crap all over your work.

    (...) These messages add zero value, and should not be enabled in a
    production release -- their developers should have noticed and fixed
    them prior to release. In most cases they aren't even debugging output
    -- they are pointless chatter that noone except the developers would
    care about.
