The desktop icon plasmoid does no longer launch an application anymore. It used to work a few days ago, then it suddenly broke. When you click the icon, the mousedown effecton does not launch.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open kickoff and drag any application, such as systemsettings or dolphin, onto your workspace (make sure widgets are unlocked)
2. Click the icon that got created
The mousedown effect is applied but nothing happens
The application starts normal
Also true with other file formats such as pictures (ie. drag a file onto the workspace and select "Icon" from the Widgets section of the popup menu)
I can also reproduce it using master. It doesn't work when widgets are unlocked.
also suffering from this in 4.9.90

don't register the icon as a dragable with the applet
this causes events to be intercepted which prevent launching when
the applet is movable.
