Yes, I find it does the same thing - workaround: remove everything from
the pages, save and then delete page. Stops the crashes.

Not a good idea, spaces in file names. Umlaute ? I do not know about

Franz has explained there are some issues with tree displays in Qt.
Playing with this code has broken it before if I recall correctly.
