Actually, it just crashes without any interference (removed old .kdev4
files/dirs). CMake project manager crashes, Custom build system doesn't
crash. That's maybe why I chosen the latter in the beginning long time ago.
And it's still unfixed in 5.4.6. It's not because of some "rare
situations". It's because of BAD quality. It announces lots of strange
features, but core options and core quality are still poor.
