Short description: QWebView takes ownership of QWebPage despite the

Inside a class inherited from QMainWindow I created a QWebView, and assigned a
page like so:
webView->setPage(new QWebPage(this));

Expected to see:
I expected everything to work normally. And exit cleanly.

Got instead:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 0x7f3fd0dca750 (LWP 10415)]
0x00007f3fd01f8c0b in QWebView::~QWebView () from ./libQtWebKit.so.4
Current language:  auto; currently asm
(gdb) bt

More details:
Th documentation has this to say about QWebView:
void QWebView::setPage ( QWebPage * page )

Makes page the new web page of the web view.

The parent QObject of the provided page remains the owner of the object. If the
current document is a child of the web view, it will be deleted.
I think that is incorrect, because it seems that the object was already deleted
by my QMainWindow and then attempt to be deleted again by QWebView, and
QWebView according to the above does not take ownership of the QWebPage, so it
shouldn't try to delete it.

When I changed my code to webView->setPage(new QWebPage); everything worked
smoothly, and I did not receive a segmentation fault on exit.
