Description Daniel Eklöf 2017-01-13 18:53:13 UTC
I've been using the git version of k3b (2.10?/17.04) for a couple of months now. It's been working great, up until 1-2 months ago, when for some reason adding files to data project simply does not work.

That is, I cannot drag-and-drop or double-click files to add them. Using Project -> Add Files also does not work.

With "does not work" I mean the added files to not show up in the project and the projects file count and size remains 0.

No error messages as far as I can tell. journalct -e only shows:

jan 13 19:48:33 tiny k3b[12347]: url list drop
jan 13 19:48:33 tiny k3b[12347]: (K3b::DataUrlAddingDialog) using locale codec:  UTF-8
jan 13 19:48:56 tiny k3b[12347]: (K3b::DataUrlAddingDialog) using locale codec:  UTF-8

Note that e.g. burning ISOs work, but that I haven't tested any other kind of projects (audio, video).

Current version is 17.04.00.r6074.fd4ab1c19 (https://github.com/KDE/k3b/commit/fd4ab1c19a6e51766bb2dd66e826230bd53b020d)

I'm afraid I don't know exactly when this started happening as I don't update my build that often.

I assume this is not expected...? Even though it's not a real release.

If this is caused by some kind of misconfiguration on my end, I'd welcome all suggestions as to what may be wrong...

I can confirm this problem on Arch.
I'm running 17.04 installed from aur repository.

I see the same issue when testing my git snapshot build for kubuntu testing.

Fix adding files to data project

In cf01ff3159dbddb97e0e67246dee16441a64984a this broke by randomly using QSharedPointer in the wrong way.
There was only this one item being referenced, once it fell out of scope it got deleted, and then by the
time the event loop returned and the queued invocation was processed, the object was already gone.

Just use WA_DeleteOnClose which will clean up nicely once we're done.

Sorry for my misunderstanding of QSharedPointer http://www.leetcode.cn/2016/08/k3b.html#bug
