Version: 1.0beta4.1
Severity: critical

Bugreport ID : 10:16,09.11.99

Originator	: Ralf Palsa
E-Mail		: rpalsa at eso.org

Subject : kdevelop --setup  crashes with segmentation fault

Error Class	: software bug
Error Location	: installation process
Priority	: medium
Bug Description ---------------------------

Having the startup logo disabled kdevelop crashes with a segmentation fault if
it is started with the '--setup' option. The reason is that in this case the
startup logo is closed without being created before (cf. main.cpp).

How to repeat the error -------------------

Disable the startup logo and run kdevelop --setup.

Bugfix or Workaround ----------------------

Note that I renamed main.cpp before I produced the following diff.
