It is saving stuff, but when the cache gets (potentially) corrupted during a
crash it cannot assume the saved stuff is usable. Thus it kills the cache and
starts again and crashes again (in your case). This is unfortunate but sadly
what we have so far :(
I'll try to look into this issue over the coming days. Can you give me some
steps on what you do with the linux kernel? That way I could try to reproduce
- which version of the kernel sources do you have?
- how do you import it into kdevelop?
- anything else I should be aware of?
