ArchLinux: kdeinit4 segfault at shutdown because of Phonon Config

I tried to change the Phonon backend from the default Gstreamer to Xine.
Then I couldn't manage to open again the Phonon pane in System Setting's Multimedia.


The only way to get it work and to set Gstreamer again, was via the manual modification of the backend configuration file:
.kde4/share/config/servicetype_profilerc


And in the end I caused this bug:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=269785


The solution?... Nothing simpler than:

$ rm .kde4/share/config/servicetype_profilerc

and a reboot (or maybe even a Logout) ;-)


Keep on Hacking! ;-)
