Those init commands are aliases for systemd commands to perform the

If you look hard enough, you can find oddities everywhere. Systemd
works so much better on modern hardware. I cannot imagine downgrading
on anything I'm running Linux on.

12 extra letters (which you don't have to type anyway since the alias
is there) is nothing in the bazillion keystrokes I seem to do every
day - and the argument about remembering commands, all I can say is
LOL. Linux is the god of obscure and cyptic commands. This is
nothing new. :-P

A question: can grub boot into uefi setups which are now, or about to be,
all the rage?

It can't handle any UEFI system I've got. I have to use Grub2. Grub
is dead in the water if you're using current/new hardware (in any
testing I've done). While yes, Grub2 was a pig to use initially, a
lot has been done to make it seamless for install and use. Adding new
entries (if you even really need to) is actually easier now with Grub2
(for me) than it ever was with Grub.

I don't see this here as I am using KDE 4.10.1, but perhaps I am not
understanding what the problem described is all about - especially since
nobody commented to your bug report back in April 2012.

This one was an issue in really old versions of KDE4. It hasn't been
around for a long time on any system I use. If it still exists on any
machine using current released of KDE4, I'd venture to say it's caused
by some leftover cruft from using old releases of KDE.
