PS, the problem listed at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=356580
also seems to apply to kinit 5.17.0-1 in the reported case. I don't know
if the kinit/kwin-x11 in Debian unstable have the same problem.
Applying the fix at https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/126361/
against the kwin 4:5.4.3-1.1 sources has at least enabled me to use KDE
again - iceweasel and other applications start up fine, although kwin
does give a crash indication and apparently restarts.
After finally discovering that if I killed kwin_x11 in plasma desktop, I
could start iceweasel fine then restart kwin_x11, I also learned that
using <alt>F2 could start an application using krunner (and that launced
iceweasel successfully when kwin_x11 was running).
This seems to narrow the problem down to package kinit (bug reported as
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=806213 ), although I
wonder what kwin_x11 has to do with things.
