Bug Description

TEST CASE:
1. On krillin rtm 14.09 #1, flash with --wipe do not configure Wifi
2. On the apps scope, bottom swipe to open the overview
3. Go the the 'All scopes' category
4. Tap on Amazon

ACTUAL RESULT
unity8-dash crashes (it's https://errors.ubuntu.com/oops/16ffcc92-3e3e-11e4-ade9-fa163e78b027 but there is no stacktrace)

EXPECTED RESULT
The Amazon scope opens and tells the user there is no network connection or scope requiring a network connection are greyed or something but in any case unity8-dash doesn't crash.

Ok, my way to reproduce a "similar" crash

go to amazon
enable airplane mode
click something (works, well you get an empty screen, not really "working" but doesn't crash)
disable airplaine mode
click something (crashes)

So the backtrace points to a very bad code in QNetworkAccessCacheBackend. I've proposed the upstream fix at https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/95245/

Meanwhile i'll recompile qt for the phone with that patch and see if that gets it fixed totally or just partially

Yep, that qt patch fixes it, now need to get it accepted upstream and distro patched.

The bug is not in declarative.

FWIW the Qt bug is being tracked at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qtbase-opensource-src/+bug/1371472
