Available at my stand in  the KDevelop 'bazaar' is a patch to add a 'Go to
definition' option to the Class Viewer and Class Tool menus. It still won't load
the source file when you click on the class, only when you select this new menu
option, but it should be easier than going off to the LFV tab etc.

I think the main problem here is with C++ - there is no syntax to mark the
beginning of the class definition. In Objective-C there is a '@implementation'
keyword. Hence, this patch will take you to the start of the souce file with
C++, but it will take you directly to the '@implementation' line in

Copy  kdevelop-1.1gotoclassdef.patch to the directory above KDevelop-1.1

 $ cd  kdevelop-1.1
 $ patch -p1 < ../kdevelop-1.1gotoclassdef.patch
 $ make
 $ make install
