This is just a guess, but I think you might have a problem with fonts. Just
before the SIGSEGV, there's a note about openoffice fonts. You might want
to check and see if there's a problem with the KDE fonts you've chosen
supporting your locale.
Hopefully, someone more knowledgeable can shed some light on the problem.
