Bug#238138: konqueror crashes randomly
I was using the KDE 3.2.0 release by building from konstruct, and
konqueror used to work fine. After the binaries were uploaded to Sid, I
started using those.
I never experienced random konqueror crashes in the local builds, but
after I started using the Sid binaries, konqueror keeps crashing. I
normally have several tabs open in konqueror windows, and it's getting
frustrating to keep re-loading the tabs from the crash log file.
I can't reproduce the error reliably. One thing to be noted is that
after the crash, the drkonqi window isn't shown: the crash is silent.
Hence, it's very confusing if I don't find my windows, and then I
realize that konqueror actually crashed w/o any notification.
One way to reproduce this bug might be the following scenario: I tend to
keep my konq windows on the 4th virtual desktop, generally switching to
it from other ones as and when needed. If the konq window I wanted was
swapped out, I don't generally wait for it to be swapped in completely,
I switch to some other virtual desktop, do some work and then return to
the 4th VD. The window simply won't be there in some cases.
This is not the only way the window crashes, however. I was surfing some
site and entered some search string and konq crashed. No crash window.
When I repeated the same sequence of events, konq didn't crash the next
This is very surprising and random behavior; I just don't know how to
reproduce or give crash logs.
Please ask if you need more information.
