Bug#465253: My experiences
I don't know if it helps but here is my experience with this bug.
Seems that at about the same time this started, when I would try to open
konqueror in file management mode as root user, I would get the
following message and konqueror would crash:
Command 'konqueror --profile filemanagement ' not found.
So this might be related.
When I try running it as root in terminal window I also get this message:
konqueror: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/kde3/konq_sidebartree_dirtree.so: undefined symbol: stat64
Actually I get that same message when running as normal user from the
terminal and then konqueror crashes as well. Here's what happened:
I typed 'konqueror --profile filemanagement' in terminal as normal user,
konqueror started. It was set to show history in the sidebar. As soon as
I clicked Folder, to see the folder tree, it crashed and gave me the
above message in terminal.
But then if I start it through Quick Browser button from the panel or
just open Home from the desktop (as normal user), it doesn't crash but
it doesn't show the folder tree either.
