(In reply to comment #28)
Would the security concern still apply if the file is located in
~/.kde4/Autostart folder?

Yes. It doesn't matter how/from where you call "xhost +local". As soon as it is
called, every local user (including SSH logins etc.) can access the X server.

As I said: it might be a _workaround_ on systems with only trusted users (or
just one user at all ;-)
xhost +local should never be a default setting, and I'm quite sure the security
team will tell you the same if you ask them.
