There's no general rule.
Deleting a QObject is as un/safe as deleting anything else.

You must ensure that the referenced memory is not used afterwards, what makes deleting "stuff" in eventfilters and slots "risky" unless you suck the event (return true) or queue the slot/know that the emitting code is safe against lossing "this" object (ie. it's a "special" problem if you connect to an objects signal and delete that very object from the slot if the emitting code does not return after the emit but tries to access members)
This does however hold for every other non-local heap structure (ie. if you delete away an objects member w/o the object noticing it, you cause a dangeling member pointer)

::deleteLater() bypasses *some* problems, but is no bullet proof deletion.
Eg. the code around the patch sets the local action pointer "0", what is completely pointless (and makes me worry somebody did sth. w/o any idea /what/ he's doing ;-)


If you need protection against randomly deleted objects, you've to use a "smart" pointer (QPointer) and then test whether the pointer ::isNull() if you're unsure about the objects state.
