I haven't been able to reproduce it yet, but sometimes I am not able to close rekonq. Clicking the close button in the titlebar, Alt-F4, or the "Close" entry in the window menu all lead to the same result of rekonq seemingly closing it's main window (it does disappear), but it immediatly afterwards reappearing with a blank white page instead of the usual favourites.
So far the only way to close it in that situation has been with "killall".

Reproducible: Sometimes

I see this behavior when downloads running in the background.
Comment 2 Panagiotis Papadopoulos 2011-03-06 17:49:44 UTC
This sometimes also happens to me for no apparent reason.

Git commit 4141eedc2fd5c014896c6196bf998b93c520a97f by Andrea Diamantini.

Pushed by adjam into branch 'master'.

This commit fix bug 266837 about the (in)ability to close rekonq,
but IT CHANGES Application::mainWindow() behavior to an unsafe mode.
It is now basically allowed to return a null pointer, leading to other possible crashes.

Some days of testing since now, for this.
