This interests me. I've been trying to write a clean exception handler 
around the event loop, so that if an exception occurs in my end-user 
oriented application (darn, I speak like I had a tie...), a nice popup 
will warn the user, and then the app will quit cleanly, after saving 
its conf if at all possible. The quitting part is done with 
qApp.quit(). What should I do instead then?
