I mean that when using the auto-save-settings feature of kmainwindow,
one should use this kind of code for editing toolbars:
* void MyClass::slotConfigureToolbars()
* saveMainWindowSettings( KGlobal::config(), "MainWindow" );
* KEditToolbar dlg(actionCollection());
* void MyClass::slotNewToolbarConfig() // This is called when OK, Apply or Defaults is clicked
* ...if you use any action list, use plugActionList on each here...
* applyMainWindowSettings( KGlobal::config(), "MainWindow" );
Note the saveMainWindowSettings / applyMainWindowSettings calls.
