Doesn't crash for me (I'm assuming it doesn't crash if I'm getting the
"parsing finished for cpplanguagesupport.cpp" message).

However I'm not sure your steps are correct, because the project is
automatically opened on the second start, so opening again re-opens it
(which actually creates a second entry in the project tree, which is a
bug obviously). And when you close the project before closing kdevelop
for the first time, cpplanguagesupport.cpp is also automatically closed.


You may be infinitely smaller than some things, but you're infinitely
larger than others.
