Ah. OK. Well it behaves as expected on Mageia then, including the crash.

Since this bug is not Sigil caused, someone should probably reopen the KDE plugin bug report, citing this exact simple testcase and and maybe reopen the Qt bug report so that this bug gets tracked down and fixed. It has existed for a long time.

I filed a bug on the Mageia system. We had pretty much determined that it was not a Sigil bug, and the assignee was going to send it upstream. I will find the bug report and report these new findings.

Update:
The Mageia bug that I posted does not appear to have been sent upstream, so I posted the problem on the KDE page with the WidgetListCrash program.

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=399989

They seem to have tracked it down pretty well and also think it is a Qt fix. I have no idea where or how to reopen the Qt bug report or which bug that refers to. I am similarly in the dark with respect to the KDE plugin.

It would be great if that last commenter who had the issue narrowed down quite a bit could file the Qt bug report.

Evidently, this very same bug was filed against Qt last year.

https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-63546

with the very same test program.

Still marked "unresolved". I guess this one is a difficult issue to fix.

Yes, I quoted that exact Qt bug earlier in this thread and that is where I got the testcase. As far as I know, no one at Qt is working on it.

It was assigned to someone in October of 2017, so over a year ago with no progress.

Sad really.

So we have come full circle. I did not make the connection from your earlier post.

Well, I woke up the KDE folks, one of whom claims to have posted that Qt bug. Maybe something will happen now.

And it looks like the KDE people already have a fix for the bug. They create a new plugin that knows how to deal with their KIconEngine and according to the tests, it fixes the problems!

Wow fast work on their part! Here is the link with the changes needed.

https://phabricator.kde.org/D16305

So it looks like it was not a Qt bug at all but a serialization/deserialization issue with Icon data probably in an Icon cache of some sort.

Not sure when this will fix will appear in a KDE release, but it is nice to know a fix now exists.
