I build my own version of rekonq and 2.4.0 is the most stable version I every 
had. I just copied to debian dir for building, i.e. I did not really put work 
into it.

The author of rekonq recommends the latest qtwebkit release.

"People reported, in this 40 days since rekonq 2.3.0 release, a lot of crash 
bugs that can be fixed just upgrading from QtWebKit 2.3.0 to QtWebKit 2.3.1."

It is sad, that we have in sid only an outdated release

rd@blackbox:~/SW.nobackup$ apt-cache policy libqtwebkit4
  Installiert:           2.2.1-7
  Installationskandidat: 2.2.1-7
 *** 2.2.1-7 0
        600 http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/debian/ jessie/main i386 Packages
        300 http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/debian/ sid/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     2.2.1-5 0
        500 http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/debian/ wheezy/main i386 Packages

*and* there is with Jose a volunteer who would want to work on qtwebkit. 

I keep hoping that you bring enough (non-technical skills) to get your dispute 
resolved...with a better result for Debian.

Kind regards
