No WILD GEESE gcc 4.7 => kwrite/kate crash, gcc 4.6 current code == All Good!

Tim, Darrell, All,

  After much (wasted) effort, I have come to the definite conclusion that the
crash seen in kwrite/kate/quanta/konqueror(filemanagement katepart) is 100% due
to gcc 4.7.

  I just finished a rebuild of current code on gcc 4.6 and kwrite works
perfectly/wraps without problem, etc... See:

  Repeating, just a Darrell confirms, building from current GIT on gcc 4.6 is
fine, building on gcc 4.7 causes the crash with no FTBFS.

  I have no clue what to do next. It is probably premature for a bug against gcc
'wrong code' until somebody can confirm that katerenderer.cpp doesn't violate
coding standards.

  Sorry for the long troubleshooting process. I should have just taken Tim's
advice and rebuilt from 46 is a first step, but sometimes the long way around
just can't be avoided.

  What to do next?

David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
