[vtkusers] Crashed when I used a QVTKWidget to render two vtkRenderWindow in turn

It has been discussed here before that there are known issues with
QVTKWidget and Qt 5.X. QVTKWidget is using the QWidget parent to get a
window and then directly using window system calls for your OS to get an
OpenGL context. This is not the way Qt expects OpenGL-based widgets to act
(and Qt knows nothing about the fact that it is an OpenGL-based widget) and
so there are problems. (Especially if you are using the new OpenGL2
rendering backend) There are a few ideas floating around for how to do
this right with Qt 5.X, but to my knowledge no one has actually tackled
this and created a VTK widget that subclasses Qt's new QOpenGLWidget and
deals with all the corner cases needed for VTK rendering. Search the
archives of this mailing list for QOpenGLWidget (or QVTKWidget) and you
should find the threads where this was discussed. I think there were a few
workarounds discussed on those...
Sorry this isn't a more helpful response,
