Known problem - unknown cause (?). The flex parsers seems to barf
sometimes for no obvious reason. I had the same problem some time back
when I moved one of my .ui files to a new subdirectory. Moving it back
made it work like a charm again.

I don't think the project file has anything to do with it.

It would be a lot easier if someone was able to reproduce this bug by
creating a small testproject and then just add .ui files in different
subdirs until the crash occured. I made a few attempts, but I still
couldn't reproduce it...
