Description Thomas Lübking 2015-03-26 16:08:20 UTC
Virtuality UI style swaps the palette of modal dialogs, for that purpose (to cover style sheet abuse... ;-) it needs to temporarily alter the application palette.

For kwrite & kate that caused quite some overhead, where I initially believed that this was an issue in kfiledialog and/or kcm, maybe sycoca, but then on kate w/ quite some docs open, the dialog wouldn't show up *after minutes* and so I checked where things were taking a nap.

It hangs around in KTextEditor::ViewPrivate::updateRendererConfig and one backtrace gave me 
text re-shaping.

The  QApplication::setPalette() call would happen twice at best in this occasion, so it's not like virtuality swaps the palette some thousand times.

Deactivating the feature shows the dialog instantly, so i'm pretty sure this is the problem.

Since application palette changes might occur for other reasons (and at runtime) I assume this should be sorted out. Any idea what might be the cause (Arch doesn't provide debug enabled libs, i'd have to compile libKF5TextEditor locally for a better backtrace if required)
