Bug Description

hi

after upgrading to kde 4.6 I get the following warning when trying to open a file dialog in vlc

Blocked: call to putenv("LANGUAGE=de_DE")
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
QProcess: Destroyed while process is still running.
Warning: call to sigaction(13, 0xb645da04, (nil))
Warning: call to srand(1487524990)
Warning: call to rand()

vlc will then freeze for about a minute and finally show me the file open dialog

a quick search for this error got me this post in the vlc forum
http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=85408

vlc version is 1.1.4 from ubuntu maverick

with regards

According to cd311's link to the VLC forum the issue should be solved with KDE SC 4.6.1 - but it's still there with kubuntu's 4.6.1 packages
