The complete lack of response to this issue (and any mail to this
mailing list i've noticed, I highly suspect everyone just filters it
into a corner in their mail client and doesn't read it at all) is
really disappointing.

Given that Kurt has disabled the test within Konsole this doesn't have
any urgency anymore.

None the less though the fact a regression with
hang-on-application-close implications was detected by the CI system
and then completely ignored by those who broke it brings up other
concerns, and essentially means the CI system is given no regard by
the Frameworks developers.

As a consequence i'll be terminating CI and Phabricator notification
mails to the Frameworks mailing list, effective immediately.
