Does 'doesn't crash anymore' count as a change? ;) I reverted and 
checked what's wrong. Here's something funny - your patch fixes the 
dangling pointer problem by going through the guarder pointer but even 
after deletion of the area a call to removeDockWindow is a requirement. 
Beats me what happens but the following change in the destructor of 
QDockWindow fixes applications:
-    if ( area )
-       area->removeDockWindow( this, FALSE, FALSE );
+    if ( this->area() )
+       this->area()->removeDockWindow( this, FALSE, FALSE );
it's obviously wrong because we go back to dealing with dangling 
pointers and I sure as hell am not sure why the call to 
removeDockWindow is a requirement considering that the area shouldn't 
even exist. Weird...

Sure, I'll try to spend some more time on it myself.


Why is abbreviation such a long word?
