ksmserver listens on all interfaces

Hi all,

I just discovered that at least with Trinity, ksmserver is
listening on all interfaces by default. This could be a security
concern. Nmap detects it as the XFCE Session Manager.

It seems this problem was separately fixed in KDE:

Was anyone aware of this? I guess it would be good to have a fix in
place for R14. Is anyone aware of a workaround?
