global.cpp: Ensure qApp does not emit signal because of local QEventLoop

Méven Car requested to merge work/meven/bug-469656 into master

The reason is that QApplication will somehow listen for the QEventLoop quitting (not sure exactly how but the two are tied in and then fires QGuiApplication::saveStateRequest which triggers KXmlGui's KMWSessionManager to fire saveState which will save the gui session of the current Dolphin instance before the state was even loaded.

The blockSignal prevents this chain of action.

I which I wouldn't have need that but KActivities::Consumer initialization runs only in mainthread and is asynchronous at the same time, which means I can't use a separate thread to load it.

That made a QEventLoop necessary to have a synchronous start here necessary.
