Hey all,

in massif-visualizer's framework branch, and now also kate, I sometimes notice 
GUI lockups when I try to open files via Ctrl + O. The backtraces look like 
the following:

Any idea what might be going on here? Is it not a good idea to mix system 
compiled KF5-based stuff (e.g. with kdesrc-build compiled 
KF5 libraries (/home/milian/projects/kf5/*)?

The applications do not recover from this lockup.
