Did you upgraded any other kde related package? Do you have a standard
testing installation, or any external apt repositories?

Ok thanks. But if now it doesn't crash I don't think it is related
with the fonts.

The rendering engines are different, you'll have to decide which one
looks better :>. Also now xfs should support truetype fonts. You will
need either xfs or xfs-xtt or xfs + xfstt.

Could you uninstall this package to see if it crashes, so we can discard
one possible problem?
