All, After rebuilds of tdelibs/tdebase yesterday evening (with fresh GIT update), I have experienced repeated crashes with kwrite becoming unresponsive. The kwrite window stays open, but no response from the menu, toolbar or context menu and the screen within the kwrite window does not repaint itself. (leading to a million copies of anything you move across it). Here are a couple of screenshots of the behavior after the crash (we've all seen it before...) http://nirvana.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/kwrite-crash-select-buffer.jpg http://nirvana.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/kwrite-crash-backspacing.jpg I repeated the crash twice. It seemed to occur when either inserting text with the select buffer (select, then middle-mouse paste) or when simply backspacing to join two lines of text in kwrite. It was bad enough that after the second crash, I had to give up and just use vim. For the second attempt working with kwrite, I started it from konsole so I could look at the kdDebug output. There was nothing out of the ordinary. These crashes have always been difficult for me to isolate. Can anyone suggest a test that would help identify the problem. Also, any reports confirming this behavior would be helpful. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
