Good point!  

After deleting the plugin and a reboot:
ak at supremo:~/save$ ls -la /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/gui_platform/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2011-07-08 15:02 .
drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 2011-04-27 21:15 ..

ak at supremo:~/save$ python3 save.py
KGlobal::locale::Warning your global KLocale is being recreated with a valid 
main component instead of a fake component, this usually means you tried to 
call i18n related functions before your main component was created. You should 
not do that since it most likely will not work 
ak at supremo:~/save$
