It seems to be animated banner ads in my case.  Pages that have flash adds are 
particularly noxious.  I see other, random crashes too, and I would agree 
with you that Konqueror has been decidedly unstable since I upgraded to 
3.2.2.  I'd say 3.2.3 is slightly worse.

There's probably not a lot you can do without digging into it with both feet.  
Get the source code, compile it with debugging symbols, work hard at 
reproducing the trouble.  Even at that, it's not so useful to go to this much 
trouble to find problems with something as old as the last stable release.  
It's better to get CVS and debug that, which ups the ante even further.  It's 
not for the likes of me, I can assure you.  I'd probably never get the thing 
compiled correctly anyway.  That's why I don't run LFS!  :)
