Default 4.2 LCD weather plasmoid

After configuring the LCD weather plasmoid to an active US weather station, the
data appear in the plasmoid window for a few seconds and then the plasmoid
crashes, causes plasma to restart and resets all the desktop configuration
settings to the 4.2 default.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix? Can anyone suggest a good/better
weather plasmoid for 4.2?
Paul

Not with just that plasmoid but it happens several times with others
that plasma crashed for me when I testing out the plasmoids in 4.2.
Plasma looks like its a bit unstable. I kept my ~/.kde folder but have
seen suggestions to delete it when upgrading to 4.2.

I have seen this too - LCD, Comic viewer, file watcher... Just log out
log in and try doing it again.. It has worked. The first time they
always crash - like a baby trying to stand up for the first time!! A
bit ridiculous, but better than crashing all the time. So, 4.2 is
still buggy but tolerable!

Hi,

There is a bug report for this and other Plasmoid crashes. Looks like it's a
QT problem. There is a patch somewhere. Here's the bug:
