Yes, I know - however, this would disable apport completely. I'd like 
to keep apport for everything not related to KDE (e.g. kernel for 
suspend failures).
Basically, I'd like something like /etc/apport/blacklist.d, but in a 
way that the crash wouldn't simply be ignored.

Still, thanks for your time.

(BTW: judging from the project Timelord announcement, this must be 
somehow possible. Although I fear it means recompiling the source, 
which is too much trouble for me.)
