QRegExp-Editor new RegExp Ui & howto deal with line breaks and spaces

In my previous post I presented the new RegExp Ui. Now I'm working on the behavior part. We all have seen and worked with long and intricate RegExp's. QRegExp-Editor main purpose is to ease the pain of dealing with RegExp's. With this in mind is obvious, at least for me, that QRegExp-Editor should allow the user to break complicated RegExp's into small ones, across multiple lines. The computed QRegExp should obviously not contain the line breaks. Take a look at the following screenshot:

And for white spaces ? How should QRegExp-Editor deal with it ? Just remove them all ?

QRegExp-Editor new RegExp Ui

Sometimes RegExp's are very very long. Just one line to edit them makes them harder to understand. So, I redesigned the RegExp.
Comments and suggestions are very welcome.

For example:

./myapp -style=mystyle
./myapp -style mystyle
All Qt programs automatically support the style command line option.
Want to know what other command line options QApplication supports ? Check it here.

https access to Gmail and the "Unknown error retrieving cookies" error

Are you getting the "Unknown error retrieving cookies" error or does KCheckGMail keeps logging in again and again ?
Yes ? So, keep reading, this post is for you.

Last January Google changed it's default access to Gmail. The default is now https, which is a great security improvement. You can read all about it in their official blog post.
KCheckGMail offers the option to use an http or https connection for a long time now. Everything worked Ok because the Gmail default was "Don't ways use https". Now that Google has changed the default to "Always use https", KCheckGMail can't handle it right. For KCheckGMail work properly you have to set Gmail setting to "Don't always use https" and KCheckGMail's network connection to "Use https connections for checking mail".

The "Unknown error retrieving cookies" and the infinite logging in loop are an result of the unmatched Gmail and KCheckGMail's https settings.

Data mining the Gmail configuration establish the proper connection  type is possible and will be present in the next KCheckGMail's release.
