[Gta04-owner] qtmoko-navit: Gui blocks in town search in binfile maps.

I recently upgraded my device to v52 armhf version of qtmoko, finding
that qtmoko-navit is no longer usable because it "hangs" during town
search gui. Same applies to all versions since the qt upgrade, I think.
Did not update for quite a time.
It seems that navit internal gui keyboard doesn't interrupt the town
search algorithm. Next letter gets visible once search algorithm has
stopped running. This can take quite a long time of course. This must
have something to do with QT event system. I double checked (and somwhow
workarounded) my binfile by building stock navit (from SVN) on vanilla
debian-armhf against stock libsdl which runs fine if replaced by
qtmoko-libsdl with some tricks. Unfortunately this doesn't behave nicely
with qtopia windowmanager.
Steps to reproduce:
- install qtmoko-navit.
- Download reasonable big binfile map. E.g. "Germany" from navit planet
- point navit to this file in otherwise stock navit.xml file
- Run navit and try to search e.G. for "Kassel" in Germany.
Note it doesn't hang forever after entering the "k". After having found
and sorted all German cities with "K" it returns back to gui.
Can somebody on the list confirm this?
