Konqueror crashing at launch with KDE 4.2.1 on Kubuntu Intrepid
Thanks, Paul. Looks like the APT repositories are still in a state of
flux. I'm getting a "public key is not available" message.

So, I did try rebooting the box (not yet logging in), Ctrl-Alt-F3'ing
into a vty, and renaming .kde/ and .kde4/. Then logged in, everything
got recreated, but still no joy. Konqueror still SIGSEGV's as described

This is just one more glitch in far too many for a "release" version of
KDE. On my production box, I'm going back to KDE 3.5.x. That one works
without fussing at me. Hopefully KDE4 on Kubuntu will be properly baked
by then. However, I will maintain a test box with Kubuntu
Intrepid/Jaunty for testing purposes, so I haven't totally given up.
