Since language-selector 0.54, language-selector-kde crashes all the time on startup.

kcmshell(5732)/python (plugin): Failed to import module
kcmshell(5732)/kcontrol KCModuleLoader::loadModule: This module has no valid entry symbol at all. The reason could be that it's still using K_EXPORT_COMPONENT_FACTORY with a custom X-KDE-FactoryName which is not supported anymore

The fix "LanguageSelector/ [change not affecting KDE]" breaks language-selector-kde, mainly because it uses "sys.argv" -> systemsettings does not use the python interpreter to load the script but a plugin wrapper . This plugin wrapper uses libpython and sip to load the code, which means that sys.argv is not defined at all (because it's defined by the interpreter itself).
