Review request for KDE Software on Mac OS X, KDevelop and Olivier Goffart.


This change should show the ASSERT statements I inserted, and was uploaded to see if I'd get a crash. It seems the objects that might be `deleteLater`'ed instead of deleted are all `QPointer`s to a kdevplatform type, so I used an ASSERT of `object->thread()` just before the delete rather than an ASSERT on `thread()` in the destructor (which ought to be the QPointer destructor, I guess).
I did the review and upload while the background parser was doing its thing (had to restart kdevelop of course), and while I didn't get a crash, the process does hang now. After attaching, gdb shows this backtrace:

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

Previous frame inner to this frame (gdb could not unwind past this frame)

The changes to the CMake file are probably a Macports-specific thing.

Repository: kdevplatform


In https://reviewboard.kde.org/r/120081/ I proposed an (accepted) approach to prevent kdevelop from crashing after closing the patch review ("git/show differences") toolview. I had another of those crashes after heavier-than-usual perusal of the toolview, despite the previous patch. The attached patch replaces all `delete`s of `QObject` derived class instances with `deleteLater()`.
