Description sheeettin 2008-10-17 22:42:57 UTC
Version:           1.3.1 (using 4.1.2 (KDE 4.1.2), Kubuntu packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.27-7-generic

If one opens another tab (e.g. via the "complete story" link), the "feed viewer" tab shows up and has a "close tab" button. If one clicks this button and proceeds to select a feed in the left pane, Akregator immediately crashes.

I'm not sure if the bug is that Akregator crashes, or that the "feed viewer" tab can be closed. :P

Crash backtrace

Backtrace, if necessary.

Confirmed. This happens when the hover option is checked.

SVN commit 873515 by osterfeld:

Don't allow the hover close button to close the main tab, which crashes
Would be better if we could remove the button alltogether for this tab

 M  +2 -1      framemanager.cpp

Disable close button on Article tab

I want to propose a patch to disable the close button on the main tab. This will make akregator to not confuse user with this do-nothing close button.

FYI: I have sent that patch to kde review board.
