KDE Upgrade (4.7.4 -> 4.8.1) changes behavior of new tab button in Konsole
 
Yesterday I did the upgrade of KDE (4.7.4 -> 4.8.1) on my "stable" workstation.
Now the "new tab button" in Konsole opens a new tab with the _default_ profile instead of opeing a new tab with the _current_ profile like it did before.
This is most annoying as I have one profile for each machine/user I manage and until now I could just click the "new tab" button and get a new window on the host that I am currently logged into.
Is there any parameter to restore the old behavior or is this hard-coded (I really hope not or I will have to start looking for a new terminal emulator with tabs that work like I want it).

F.Y.I.
I posted the same question on the KDE-User mailing list and got the following answer:

<quote>
For the 4.8.x series, there is no way. See
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=184788 for why the old behavior
is sometimes problematic.

A new action "Clone Tab" has been added in the development version,
which is dedicated for that handy/confusing behavior. See
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=292518 .

If this change is unbearable for you and you can't wait for KDE SC
4.9, you can build from source code either the older version or the
development version. You can get the source code of Konsole from
https://projects.kde.org/projects/kde/kde-baseapps/konsole/repository.
Checkout the master branch or the v4.7.4 tag. If you are unfamiliar
with building KDE applications, take a look at
http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/Example.
