Bug#482268: kate: kwrite freezes on certain replacement

Package: kate
Version: 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-2+b1
Severity: grave
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

1) I start kwrite. It shows a new empty document.
2) I type 'abc' (without the quotes).
3) I open a replace dialog and set the following options:
   the quotes below surround what is typed in fields, the quotes are not part 
   of the field data.
   Text to find: '[ab]'
        as a regexp
   Replace with: '\\0'
        with backreferences allowed
   Search is case-sensitive, not from the cursor, prompt before replace
4) After completing the dialog, the first letter 'a' is highlighted and a new 
   dialog appears asking for confirmation for the replacement.
   I select to replace the item (left most button labelled 'Csere' in 
5) The button changes to be clicked and then nothing happens. Kwrite seems to 
   be frozen: when some part of the window is covered by another window, the 
   window is not redrawn. It does not react to keyboard or mouse events.

The only way I know to get out of the situation is to kill kwrite.
I know no way to recover the text I have typed in, hence this bug is marked to 
cause data loss.

Kate also has this problem.

Best wishes,

	Gábor Braun
