This is due to a patch from KDE's svn, so it seems to me that this was a
bug in the released 3.5.0 or 3.5.1 source. Thus you should make PyKDE
work with private copy constructor and assignment operator. Seems like
the KDE-people just forgot this and thus the compiler-generated default
gets used which will be public.

The revisions that introduced the change are 502693 and 506549.


You will live a long, healthy, happy life and make bags of money.
