Bug#482268: kate: kwrite freezes on certain replacement
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.
