Binary package hint: kde4libs

This bug affects Ubuntu 8.10 kde4libs packages for 4.1.X and 4.2.0.

There is a problem in kdecore/localization/kcatalog.cpp which causes kmail (at least -- the bug probably affects other applications as well) to leak large amounts of memory fairly fast (I've seen 2 MB leaked when kmail checks for new mail, although usually less).

The upstream bug report can be found at <https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=184529>, and also has a link to a patch for 4.2.1 which is also directly applicable to 4.1.4. The direct link to the patch itself is <http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kdecore/localization/kcatalog.cpp?r1=899214&r2=918505&view=patch>.
