Just a faint possibility, but do you also have libsafe installed?

According to libsafe, there's a buffer overflow in a memcpy() in 
kio_http that only seems to reveal itself when kio_http is in SSL mode. 
I've been trying to track down exactly what's going on for some time 
but I don't have a lot of time or skill at debugging C++.

If libsafe is installed it will terminate the kio_http process whenever 
it comes across this overflow, which is frequently, giving exactly the 
symptoms you report.  Check /var/log/auth.log for messages about this 
from libsafe.

If you do have libsafe installed, the workaround is to uninstall 
libsafe.  :-/  Not ideal, I know, especially if you're a little 

It's bug 30043 in the KDE bugs database ( http://bugs.kde.org ) if 
you're interested.
