We could take a look how KDevelop handles that and use the same mark 
like them (if they use marks for such things).

I tried it, works nicely here.


I fixed a small issue in the path normalization, but that was broken in 
too ;=) A bug reporter showed some weird symlink/../../.. stuff.

It will try to setFocus to the toolview.
If the toolview doesn't accept any focus, nothing will happen.
But normally the tool view should accept focus and allow e.g. selection 
an entry via the keyboard, like e.g. the documents toolview (and since
some fixes today the projects tree view).

Cool, keep the nifty features arriving .)
