Description Erik Zeek 2010-11-19 18:16:07 UTC
Version:           4.5 (using KDE 4.5.3) 
OS:                Linux

Checking rss feeds in Akregator causes a double free in AuthInfo.  I have some local feeds that are password protected (all on the same server, all with the same password) that appear to be triggering this error.

A quick look at AuthInfo shows that it's failing when freeing the PIMPL.  A possible cause of this is that the PIMPL *pointer* value is being copied in the assignment operator, not the contents of the pointer (I didn't look at the copy constructor).  This will lead to multiple objects with the same PIMPL, and multiple free attempts.  Perhaps the bare pointer can be replaced with a reference counted one?

Reproducible: Sometimes

Actual Results:  
Application: KDE Daemon (kded4), signal: Aborted
