I can file reports, but I would like some guidance to remedy the problem. You mention KDE_EXPORT. I can grep other modules for such instances, but a basic punch list of what is needed would help me attempt a patch and remedy the problem sooner rather than later. :)

Second, how do I know or check that symbols are being hidden?
