Description of problem:
When adding files to a project by typing their name into the
"Sourcefiles(s)" area in the "Add Existing Files(s)..." dialog box,
kdevelop effectively uses up all the cpu power, locking up the system
(making it VERY slow) and kdevelop needs to be terminated.
Adding files to a project by right clicking inside the file area in
the left window pane works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kdevelop and open any project (or create a new one).
2. From the Project menu select "Add Existing File(s)..."
3. Try to type something into the "Sourcefile(s)" entry area.
Actual Results: CPU seems to get very busy and it is hard to get the
mouse to respond. Kdevelop is dead and will need to be terminated.
Expected Results: Should allow you to enter a filename.
This bug exists in RedHat Linux 9 and Fedora Core 1 that I know of,
except under both those platforms kdevelop just exits immediately you
try and enter text.
