Every KDE App Crashes

I've checked back 3 months on the mailing list and there was nothing like 
this, so please don't shoot me if it has come up before!

My Debian/Unstable media box running the most current KDE behaves exactly as 
expected except when I terminate a KDE application such as KEdit, Konsole, or 
KControl.  When I terminate it (either alt+F4, quit from the menu, or click 
on the little X) the app closes fine, but then a KDE Crash Handler Dialog 
comes up.  It informs me that there has been a crash of type SIGSEGV for 
whatever app I happen to be running.  The Backtrace is of little help, but I 
could include it if someone knows what to do with it.  I can close the dialog 
box and there seem to be no ill after-effects, I can restart the app without 
a hitch.

To add some additional mystery...  non-KDE apps, like Mozilla or Mplayer, have 
no issues.  But, even MORE strange, is that Konqueror doesn't have the issue, 
just the rest of the KDE apps.  I assume that it means Konqueror never 
actually terminates.  Additionally, when logging in through KDM, there are 
multiple crashes as things like KDM and Ksplash come and go.  Oh, and it 
effects all users on the system, so I can't imagine its a setting in 
$HOME/.kde folder.

I know its not a package problem, because my laptop and main desktop are 
working fine running the same Unstable KDE packages.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
