Thanks for this hint, I haven't known kdebugdialog so far. But in this case it 
wouldn't work, all debug output was disabled anyway.
The offending line is no. 219 in 
KDevelop/languages/cpp/includepathcomputer.cpp. It's a kWarning() makro there. 
Maybe it's not possible to turn this off in kdebugdialog, whereas kDebug() is?

Anyway, I don't see that this is such a serious thing to justify that it can't 
be turned off. It seems to be pretty normal. If I open the kdevelop project I 
get loads of these messages! 

If you have to open kdevelop from an xterm it's not so nice if stdout is 
flooded by these messages.

I commented out this line and the problem is gone.
Wouldn't it be better to replace kWarning() by kDebug(9007)?

True, I have to investigate where it comes from. The problem just seems to 
happen on my machine at work, but not at home.
However, Kdevelop, namely the context browser clearly triggers the problem. As 
soon as I press the red cross to stop the parsing job, the flood stops
