This workaround was suggested by me, and I'm not KDE developer.

We found that current KAccel code works only if XLookupString() returns 
latin character, so just I forced it to do so.

I'm already using packages with the fix applied for about 2 weeks on 
several computers. No more crashes, no related problems.

An interesting note is that the bug was not there in 3.2. Ctrl+W worked as 
expected in konqueror both in russian and english layout. But probably the 
situation was similar there, it just didn't cause a crash - I don't know.

We have not filed bug report to KDE after our debugging session, we just 
wrote to kde-devel. This probably was not a good idea, there was no reply. 
So I've submitted bug report to KDE today, it's #96621 there.
