From experience I'd say that this point towards a damaged or incorrectly 
installed library, probably in kdelibs or libqt. This would also explain why 
non-KDE apps work fine. Concerning konqueror, you are right, konqueror 
normally does not really terminate if you close the window.

To really see whether me assumption about the libraries is right, I'd need to 
see at least two backtraces of different apps crashing in the described way, 
to see, if there are similarities. You can send me the backtraces via private 
mail if you'd like, or send them to the list. You can cull all the 
"content-free" lines from the BT ("no debugging symbols found"), so the BTs 
don't get too long. I'll take a look, but no promises....

As stated previously I would no exclude a packing problem too easily, but it 
would be more like a corrupt file somewhere instead of a general problem with 
a package.
