Description George Kiagiadakis 2010-12-06 11:25:37 UTC
Version:           4.1.0 (using KDE 4.5.3) 
OS:                Linux

Sometimes kdevelop crashes (unfortunately). When this happens, however, it is not a disaster as the unsaved contents of the editor, the open files, the open projects, etc are preserved, so I can just reopen it and continue (good!).

The problem however is that if I import a new cmake project, configure its build directory in the dialog that pops up and later kdevelop crashes, the build directory configuration is not saved, so when I re-open kdevelop, it asks me again to configure the build directory. This is highly annoying when I have a lot of projects open and especially since I have to change each one of the build directories to point to ~/kde/build/foo instead of ~/kde/src/foo/build that kdevelop shows by default.

The problem can go away only if I import a new project, close kdevelop and reopen it. It seems that this configuration is only saved when kdevelop closes.

I guess it shouldn't be too hard to change the code so that it saves this configuration right after closing the configuration dialog and not when closing kdevelop. Please :)

Reproducible: Always

Sync config changes made while importing to the disk,
so that they're not lost if your computer doesn't work well.
(yep, can't be that kdevelop doesn't ;))
