Sorry but I do not see the point of reporting here it crashes if you do not
try to check what is the problem, it might have been very well a problem in
*your* system or a problem that is easily fixable.
kword, kspread open here a new document without problem, yes they crash from

sidux, AFAIK it should not be very far from Debian unstable but that packages
