[Patch] Fix: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory:

Bug #855472 reported by Achim Bohnet on 2011-09-21

Bug Description

Every KDE and QT GUI application complains on startup:

QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /home/allee-o/.config/ibus/bus

that very disturbing when working on the command line, e.g. with kate or okular etc.

Creating the directory ~/.config/ibus/bus makes the error go away. I installed ibus-daemon
and started it once and found:

   mode 770 ibus
   mode 700 ibus/bus

I've added this to the startkde script. See attached patch.

When the patch is tested, this would be IMHO a candidate for natty too.
