I cannot reproduce this here with master from Jan 18th. Kdevelop parses
all the related code just fine.

What do you mean with "Kdevelop took out the KDE desktop"? In general
the only thing that KDevelop could do is eat up all memory, but the
oom-killer in current kernels should take out kdevelop only or whole
X11. Of course before that happens everything will get a lot slower
since the machine will start swapping. So a bit more details would be
useful on this.

Hmm, boost 1.42 here.
