w = None works for me too, and is much better than restricting
KApplication variable names to three letters (I don't know why, but
that worked). A 'del w' (which is effectively the same) will work
The w = None is at least reasonable - it points to some problem
with 'w' (KMainWindow) needing to be destroyed before the 'exit'
code runs. Between that and the sensitivity to the length of a
variable name, it appears to be some sort of memory allocation or
pointer error - it could be a Python 2.2 problem also in that case.
Once again, I'd love to fix this but have no idea where to begin.
