Bugs happen, this isn't the first nor the last one. If you can't live with
it, install an older CD or whatever. Complaining won't get you anywhere,
you got KDE for free (no charge from us, at least).

to copy paths instead of URLs (e.g. by browsing file:/ instead of media or =
which nobody forces you to browse).
