Thank you for the very detailed answer. Overloading is what I did at 
KMLDonkey. Also if I don't agree there (see my comment at 
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86756#c2 why it is a bad behaviour), I 
could live with it. Also one point pro leaving it that way is, that Qt itself 
doesn't remove the selection if an item got hidden. So, it's somewhat 
consistant. Bug got marked as "wont fix".

If the selectedItems()-behaviour is wannted then it's just a minor report.
