This is not really a bug, in my opinion.

The view() of a combobox is the popup that shows up when opening the combo.
If you don't open the combo at all, then obviously the view isn't used, so why
should its currentIndex() matter? If you want to know the current item in the combo
itself, that's what combo->currentIndex() does. I see little reason to call
combo->view()->currentIndex().row() instead, since this indeed relies on the popup
being used, which might not be the case.
