           Summary: Import of boost C++ libraries fails.
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: 3.0.3
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: crash
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel kdevelop org
        ReportedBy: j.merritt pgrad unimelb edu au

Version:           3.0.3 (using KDE KDE 3.2.2)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          gcc (GCC) 3.3.2 20031218 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.2-r5, propolice-3.3-7) 
OS:                Linux

Attempting to import the boost C++ libraries using "Project->Import Existing Project..." fails.  The failure is characterized by an apparent infinite loop, and sometimes a segfault.  I have been able to track down at least one problem.  The importer apparently cannot parse duplicated nested namespaces like this:

namespace a {
 namespace b {
  namespace b {

This pattern occurs quite frequently in the boost libraries.  I am not certain that this is the only problem, but is certainly one of them.
