I wouldn't exactly consider myself a guru, but I had a look, and I can't see anything
obviously wrong with the file.  As far as I can tell by means of Mark I Eyeball, it
is in compliance with the language.dtd file included in the same directory, and therefore
has correct syntax (although a recheck with a proper parser might turn up something
that I missed).

The file does not exist on my KDE3 system and was apparently added to Trinity at
the beginning of this year, but I have other Kate syntax highlighting schemas of
similar vintage that aren't causing any problems, so it anything is up with this
file, it's either peculiar to it or peculiar to Trinity.

Or it could just be that .kcrash files are difficult to parse for some reason--I
don't have a sample handy to check.
