Kontact randomly crashes from random mouse clicks.

This is not reproducible. The current crash resulted from long clocking on the reply button to choose "reply to author". Doing this again did not result in a crash. Yesterday it crashed while dragging a feed in the Feeds area. Earlier it crashed while dragging a mail, before even reaching the target folder, I long clicked, moved it about 2 cm, crash. I hope the attached crash dump is useful, the reporter gave it 3 stars.

Unfortunately, the backtrace does not reveal much information. It seems related to timers firing while a menu was up (local event loop).

Relevant part of backtrace:

My wife has been hitting this crash regularly for the last few years.
Let's try to see what frame #6 might be.

One possibility would be:
#5  QMenuSloppyState::stopTimer() { m_time.stop(); }
#6  QMenuSloppyState::enter()
#7  QMenu::enterEvent(QEvent*)

But for #5 to crash, `this` must be deleted, but then the other member vars accessed in reset() would crash too.

Alternatively, this comes from m_parent->childEnter().

#5  QMenuSloppyState::stopTimer() { m_time.stop(); }
    QMenuSloppyState::childEnter() on the parent
#6  QMenuSloppyState::enter()  calls m_parent->childEnter();
#7  QMenu::enterEvent(QEvent*)

This seems more likely, m_parent would be a dangling pointer. But m_parent only happens with submenus...
There are submenus in the "Reply" toolbutton, but the mouse is nowhere near those... or maybe that's what triggers it?

It's Qt bug, now it's fixed
