Aha, this might be be a (bad? :P) clue to those knowledgeable enough of tablet 
So I wanted to get a backtrace of the hanging Krita. I ran it in a gdb, with 
the intention of then killing it remotely, and getting a backtrace in the 
process. But, if I ran it in gdb, it just spawned a LOT of dialogs (one time 
13, another time 40 or so), but didn't hang. My suspicion was that Qt 
automatically does -nograb when being run in gdb, but -dograb seemed to make 
no difference. So I'm no step further, but maybe someone else gets an insight 
with this?
