Problems w/ Dialog Editor

I had a look at the method in the Dialog Editor that should have been emitting
the 'setSpecialValueText()' code, and saw that the the relevant line was

In kdlgedit.cpp, change the method 'void KDlgEdit::generateQSpinBox()' so it
generates the code for the 'setSpecialValueText()' call when the
'SpecialValText' property is set (line 749 or so):

void KDlgEdit::generateQSpinBox(KDlgItem_Widget *wid, QTextStream *stream,QString _parent)
    KDlgPropertyBase* props = wid->getProps();

    props->dumpConstruct(stream, "QSpinBox", _parent);

    props->dumpPropCall(stream, "setRange",
			props->getPropValue("MinValue") +","+props->getPropValue("MaxValue"));
    props->dumpIntPropCall(stream, "setValue", "Value");

    props->dumpBoolPropCall(stream, "setWrapping", "isWrapping", false);
    props->dumpStringPropCall(stream, "setSpecialValueText", "SpecialValText");

    *stream << "\n";

ie add this line:
    props->dumpStringPropCall(stream, "setSpecialValueText", "SpecialValText");

I'm not sure about the 'Dialog only opening once per session bug'. 

It's a good idea to only submit the minimum info needed to fix the bug in a bug
report - ie just do a test dialog with a single spin box and send in the that.
Perhaps the length of your dialog put off the maintainers..
