It's a confluence of three bugs or (mis)features:

- CMake sends an enormous response
- QJson refuses to parse said response¹
- KDevelop does not handle said failure gracefully

(¹ https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-58652)

In some senses, it's actually the last is the "most bug-like", and is
what my patch addresses. IMHO this should be fixed regardless, since it
is making KDevelop more robust against unexpected conditions at minimal
cost; it will provide more graceful degradation in case of QJson failure
for *any* reason. (In particular, as René notes, it should improve
things in the case that the server sends a corrupt response for some
reason. We don't *expect* that would ever happen, but right now, if it
did, it would cause the same symptoms.)
