Subject : Dialog preview can cause KDE (kwm?) to hang!

Error Class	: software bug
Error Location	: dialog editor
Priority	: high
Bug Description ---------------------------

Sometimes when I do a dialog preview the preview will pop up, but I
can't move the window around anymore, or close it, or do anything else
in KDE, it wedges somehow.  Interestingly, you can try and click on the
panel and taskbar for a while, and for a while the buttons will at least
look like they've been clicked, then they too will wedge.  Kwm starts
eating memory slowly and I have to kill it.

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

Make some dialogs, preview them a lot.  I'm not sure if it depends on
how fancy the dialogs are, it's only happened twice so far and with
different dialogs.

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