  [ Harald Sitter ]
  * [KDE] Fix bug in I18nHelper, where it would trigger a crash if unicode()
    to UTF-8 fails. Fallback to latin1 in this case. This for example happens
    when the APT keyring contains a key with non-latin characters, which can
    happen with PPA keys, since those contain the owner's name.
