I've recently come back from China and on the way back to Europe I made a stopover in Dubai, UAE where my passport was stamped.
If I decided to go to China again, would this stamp be a problem whilst applying for a new visa?

If you ever do have a situation where a visa stamp in your passport will preclude you from visiting another country, your passport agency will likely be fine with granting you a second passport.
This happens not infrequently with US journalists--the US government issues them a second passport for what some call the "terrorism tour" countries. (The second passport is not free and is only issued after an interview with an FSO, Foreign Service Officer.)
The idea that you can only get one passport at a time from a particular country is NOT true.
Your mileage may vary if your passport is issued by a country other than the US.
I've been to China with a UAE stamp in the same passport. No problem was raised. I don't particularly see why there would be a problem?
China and the UAE have pretty good relations.
So in answer to your question - yes, it IS possible to travel to China with a UAE stamp in your passport.
I can confirm Mark Mayo's experience. It is possible to travel to China with a UAE stamp in your passport.
I base this on my own experience. I have two stamps from the UAE as well as several visas, both business and travel Visas from China in my passport and never experienced any problems at immigration in either of the two countries.
