This is great work! Something is killing it gestures. I can't explain why it 
appears to start sometimes and not others. One observation I have is that if 
it 'works' in a build, it will 'always work', but for some reason if it does 
not work after a build, then is seems to always 'not' work. Tracking it down 
to KHotKeys may help the issue with kded and why it starts sometimes and not 
other times (that may be the 'k' -> 't' issue I am seeing in my last 
3.5.13-sru build. My experience has been:

3.5.12     -> Always Worked
3.5.13-sru -> Always worked up to 8/14 build then stopped
14.0.0     -> Worked until 4/18 build, fixed, 7/17 broke again

I'm glad you can at least track it to KHotKeys and get it working by manually 
starting KHotKeys. That helps.

I'm still swamped at work. Hopefully, next week or it will ease up.
