The attached file adds a fix for a crash [1] that was introduced in 4.8.x. The crash most notably affects the recently released Calligra Suite 2.4, but also GNU TeXmacs and probably others. The fix will be in the upcoming 4.8.2 [2], but until then it would be great if you could update the package with this patch.


Additional info:

The attached patch is for the qt-4.8.1-1 package.
Fedora has also decided to patch Qt 4.8.1 with this fix, since it's pretty serious.

Steps to reproduce:

E.g. Calligra Words exhibits exceedingly crashy behavior without this patch, to the point where the developers of Calligra has disabled compilation on Qt 4.8+ unless you specify -DIHAVEPATCHEDQT=1 when building.
This task depends upon
