I never saw/heard about such behaviour.

What do you mean by "hangs"?
Did you try attaching gdb to kdevelop and get a backtrace?

And as you know we can only do something about this if we can
reproduce the issue - so
maybe you can try to simplify your code to the point where the issue
is still visible.
(and share that code with us)
