Yeah.. I haven't made any progress with that crash either. First time I saw 
it, I thought it was my system only, but it appears pretty much everyone can 
reproduce it under the right circumstances. I guess if we can't figure this 
out soon, we need to remove the 'alert' option. :(

I noticed that the crash doesn't happen if we "step off" the callchain from 
katepart and not show the alert messagebox direcly, and instead signal 
ourselves via a singleshot timer. However, this messes up the other part of 
the file alteration logic - the part which listens to newStatus() - a signal 
telling us when the editor buffer changes state.
