I would put some qualifications on that.

I have written programs that are bug free, but they were NOT GUI 
interface.  They were written in FORTRAN and is is much easier to write 
a bug free batch program in FORTRAN than it is to write a GUI based 
program in C.

I have written rather short assembler programs that I believe are bug free.

In the current case (KDE/Qt/GUI), it is a question of size and complexity.

So, it is possible to write bug free programs.  The question is how.

IIRC,  Bjorn Stroustrup thinks that it *is* possible to write bug free code.

But, any who, the bugs I am talking about are not programing errors, 
they are things that don't quite work correctly that are probably caused 
by errors in logic or cases that were not accounted for.
