Description Allan Sandfeld 2018-03-12 21:38:00 UTC
QSqlDatabase is not thread safe and can not be used from multiple threads. This is however done massively in Akonadi.

Qt 5.11 will print millions of warnings due to this as they are now warning if you do this wrong.
Comment 1 Allan Sandfeld 2018-03-12 21:45:39 UTC
Actually, it might not be that wrong, it is just that QSqlQuery is at least temporarily in an illegal state when constructored by the querybuilder.
Comment 2 Allan Sandfeld 2018-03-12 22:39:54 UTC
Yes upon further investigation this mainly seems to be trigger by the use of default constructed QSqlQuery as a non-initialized null value, but that is not how Qt treats them, and they will try to connect to the default database and prepare to execute commands there.
Comment 3 Allan Sandfeld 2018-03-12 22:45:20 UTC
I wrote this change that seems to stop most of them: https://phabricator.kde.org/D11273
Comment 4 Allan Sandfeld 2018-03-13 10:42:20 UTC
The change in Qt that triggers this is https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/213515/

Fix QSqlQuery warnings

A default constructed QSqlQuery is not a passive null-value but a
query prepared for the default database which may not be allowed
in the current thread. Instead try connecting to the akonadi default
