I finally found the bug which causes the crashs on 'Quit' in KDevelops MDI framework... I was just searching at the wrong place all the time ;-)

The final slotStatusMsg(...) call in slotFileQuit causes the crash, I guess because it comes to late because the statusbar or some structure has already been destroyed by the calls to w->close().

Simply removing this call solves the problem.


void Mdidbg_okApp::slotFileQuit()
  // close the first window, the list makes the next one the first again.
  // This ensures that queryClose() is called on each window to ask for closing
  KMainWindow* w;
    for(w=memberList->first(); w!=0; w=memberList->first())
      // only close the window if the closeEvent is accepted. If the user 
presses Cancel on the saveModified() dialog,
      // the window and the application stay open.
  slotStatusMsg(i18n("Ready."));   // <=== CAUSES CRASH  !!!
