Yeah, the patch was committed 2011-10-26 and 3.5.13 was released 2011-11-1.

You folks have a better grasp of those things than me. :)

I suppose somebody could back port the patch to a 3.5.13 test system and test for several days. My guess is the errors/warnings reported in the bug report will reappear because whatever was the true cause of those messages was not really fixed with that patch. I think this one of those moments when one problem masked another. Therefore reverting that one patch in 3.5.13 without the other unknown fixes is likely to resurrect those messages.

I'm guessing something else changed along side of or after that one patch that actually resolved the messages.

Possibly browsing through the Commit Patches web page might reveal possible candidates. Anything related to dcop is possible, but if the cause was due to some tq/TQ cleanup then we are unlikely to ever know.

If I was an admin or distro maintainer, unless I could find the other fix that likely resolved the problem, I'd leave 3.5.13 as is and revert the patch only in GIT builds.

I can only offer that reverting the patch in GIT solved "my" problem of running kate concurrently as normal and root users. Nobody else has yet confirmed the same problem exists for them.
