See bug report and comments in the code for details. Thanks to
Bernhard for helping to track this down :)

// KDE bug 288612, comment 12: Due to some bug in Qt 4.7 a segfault will occur
// if the first QNetworkConfigurationManager instance is created by a thread
// that is not the GUI thread. This leads to segfaults at startup when e.g.
// reverse geocoding is called very early. Therefore we create an instance here
// before any runners will work.
// QNetworkConfigurationManager was introduced in Qt 4.7, the segfault does not
// happen with 4.8, thus the Qt version check.

// The thread will be started at setting persistent tile cache size.
