Yeah, there's no reason it would be null at that point if not also null in the ctor.

I know. I half expected KXMLGUIClient to inherit a Qt type with meta info but no such luck. Still, as far as I understand, the standard C++ type_info data should persist until the application exits but I'm not getting anything useful out of it.

Looks like I'll have to print a few frames of stack backtrace after that warning if the issue confirms itself. Or turn the qWarning into a qFatal.
