Some applications currently refuse to start in KDE plasma 5.20.0 (for example gitk, emacs):

Undefined color: "WINDOW_FOREGROUND"

application-specific initialization failed: unknown color name "BACKGROUND"
Error in startup script: unknown color name "BACKGROUND"
(database entry for "-background" in widget ".")
invoked from within
"load /usr/lib/ Tk"
("package ifneeded Tk 8.6.10" script)
invoked from within
"package require Tk"
(file "/usr/bin/gitk" line 10)

This happens only if exportKDEColors=true in ~/.config/kcmdisplayrc, but that appears to be the default (and is also a setting that can not be controlled by any GUI elements since they removed the GTK style KCM).

The bug is already fixed in plasma-workspace master:

Would it be possible to backport
