According to a mail saw in the KDEVELOP mailing list, RedHat missed a patch to
the QT library in QCommonStyle. Looking at the trace, it seems that the crash
happened inside QCommonStyle::drawControl Could this be the reason ?
I'm attaching the e-mail that mentions that.

Checking RedHat's Qt3 RPMs, looks like they didn't apply
a patch to Qt that prevents divide-by-zero crashes in QCommonStyle,
and the BT looks exactly like that bug..
I am somewhat inclined to close this, myself, but since this is in KDevelop
land I'll leave it as it is...
Which version of Qt are you using? I'm not seeing this with 3.0.3-7
skipjack beta 2 contains qt-3.0.3-6
I'm also unable to reproduce this w/ 3.0.3-7. Closing as RESOLVED:RAWHIDE.
