Bug Description ---------------------------

2 problems when using '++' in a project path (e.g. /home/armin/C++/Quarto/kquarto)

If you want to add an existing file to your project, you end up in an infinite loop
and you have to kill kdevelop.

If you create dialogs, no sourcecode will be generated, only the

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

Create a project in a path containing '++'. Create a normal KDE application and 
try to add an existing file. Be prepared to kill kdevelop...

Try to create a small dialog using the dialog editor. Then create
the sourcecode for it. No files will be generated!

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

The reason for both problems is the same:
  a QRegExp-replace to remove the current project directory
  from a pathname.

1. in 'kdevelop/kdevelop/ckdevelop_project.cpp', replace


    if(rel_name.find(prj->getProjectDir()) == 0)
       rel_name.remove (0, strlen (prj->getProjectDir ()));

2. in 'kdevelop/kdevelop/kdlgedit/kdlgedit.cpp' replace



    if(abs_filename.find(prj->getProjectDir()) == 0)
      abs_filename.remove (0, strlen (prj->getProjectDir ()));

Have fun,
