write(2, "ASSERT failure in QList<T>::at: "..., 101ASSERT failure in

But that has nothing to do with the reason. It is only complaining that there
is no debug information. I don't even have /usr/include/qt4.

I tired contacting upstream earlier but got no answer. Most probably because I
was not able to supply a meaningful bug report.
Anyway: I tried strace to see at least with which file k9copy fails. Lo and
behold - it was with /home/username/.kde/share/config/K9Copy
(mind the capital letters).
I always tried to delete ../apps/k9copyrc and that didn't change a thing. No
wonder, that file does not seem to be used for ages.
So I deleted ../config/K9Copy and k9copy worked again.
Now I don't know why nor in what way K9Copy was corrupted. As a text file it
seemed to be OK.
With the huge amount of libraries and programs which k9copy loads I see that I
won't have time to install all the sources and start a debug session.
I'll switch back to "user-mode" and be happy with k9copy doing what it's
supposed to do now.
I learned one thing: making a 'program'-dbg package is a lot of work and many
thanks go to everybody who ever supplied any to Debian.
Thank you for your consideration and greetings.
