For that reason I always set my config NOT to parse the entire project after opening, and I patch KDevelop so I have a "reparse entire project" action in the project manager context menu.
It also helps to "exclude from project" (= set up a filter) on build directories and patterns matching autoconf/automake temporary files.
Quit KDevelop explicitly before you log off, that way it's less likely to crash, and your next log in will be faster.
