>Dist: SuSE 7.3
>automake: 1.4-p5
>autoconf: 2.5.2
>(both as distributed with SuSE 7.3)

I have exactly the same problem. My backtrace is:

Around frame #12 there is garbled output to be displayed. The strange thing 
is that if I run kdevelop in the debugger of kdevelop this step works fine, 
but then receivedStdout() is called by childHasFinished() instead of 
Another thing that drives me crazy is that the F3 key does not work and I 
have no clue why. Debugging through the code it seems that the accelerator 
for this key must be removed completely from the list. Even assigning a 
different shortcut does not trigger calling the funciton  
QAccel::shortcutKey( const QString &str ). Does anybody have a clue here?
I found a line:
	kdecore (KAccel): WARNING: Sym::initQt( 3788 ): failed to convert key. 
and I think the lines
  accel->insertItem(i18n("Load tags file"), "LoadTagsfile", 
  accel->connectItem("LoadTagsfile", m_pParent, SLOT(slotProjectLoadTags() 
are causing this problem.


PS: valgrind -v kdevelop yields some interesting insights ;)
