Version: (using KDE 4.2.0)
Installed from: Fedora RPMs
Since 4.2.0 release, kded doesn't seem to detect newly installed .desktop files and rerun kbuildsycoca4.
iirc, it *did* work in kde-4.0.96 (but don't quote me on that).
Also confirmed on Mandriva 2009.1 Cooker upgraded to KDE 4.2.0 final.
SVN commit 918838 by dfaure:
Fix regression introduced by r910248; two bools (b_checkUpdates and bCheckUpdates) for the same thing,
and b_checkUpdates was always false, so the directories were never watched, and people had to run
kbuildsycoca4 by hand after installing new desktop files.
