Thank you for the hint. With your name I was finally able to find your patch 
(http://osdir.com/ml/kde.kimdaba/2007-02/msg00058.html). I vaguely remembered 
that someone had already found a solution for this. Sad, that your patch 
didn't make it into the code. I am still hoping that I might find the time to 
create a patch myself. With limited time and even more limited programming 
skills, nobody should hold his breath, though.
