Bug in kdevelop 2.1rc2 for KDE3.0

I think I have found a bug in kdevelop 2.1rc2, which causes a crash
when trying to add an existing file to the project.
The crash will happen every time, if the project is opened automatically
when calling kdevelop, or if it is opened using the "open recent".
if kdevelop starts without loading a project (such as after a crash)
and the project is then opened with "open" followed by the selection of
the project file in the file selection dialog, the crash does *not*
when trying to add and existing file.
If the project is first opened automatically when calling kdevelop and
then opened again using "open" it will also not crash when trying to add
a file.
I can also avoid the crash by starting a kdevelop session with automatic
loading of the last project and then performing some other "open file"
operation, such as File->open and opening a source file. If I then try
to add an existing file, it will work OK.
This seems to indicate that the crash only happens if a successful
"open file" has not yet been made. Even selecting a directory in the
open file dialog and then pressing cancel will prevent the crash later.

The crash occurs at line 82 of caddexistingfiledlg.cpp:


in the constructor for CAddExistingFileDlg.

I haven't pursued the matter further since I didn't compile kdelibs
with debugging information, but it does look a bit like a kdelibs bug.

Anyway, the backtrace is:

The version of kdevelop2.1rc2 is the one for KDE 3.0. It was compiled
gcc-3.0.4  (So was the rest of KDE and Qt, of course). My system is 
an AMD Athlon Thunderbird machine running Mandrake Linux 8.2rc2.
The KDE version is 3.0rc2. The Qt version is the one that came with
(qt-copy), which is (I think) pretty much Qt 3.0.2.

Hope this helps somehow. Once you know how to avoid this bug, it is not
really a showstopper, but nevertheless...
