   I just rebuilt tdelibs/tdebase on i686 to confirm - the same crash occurs 
and it is 100% repeatable.

   To confirm, all you need to do is open konsole and cat a file or do 
something to give you text to select and copy into kwrite. Then begin 
selecting text (one or two words at a time) in konsole and then middle-mouse 
paste into line 1 of kwrite. Continue doing this until you get to the point 
where the line will wrap on the next paste. When you paste the next selection 
that would cause line 1 in kwrite to wrap - the crash will occur. See example:

   You will then have to 'terminate' kwrite by clicking the close button and 
wait for the 'Terminate' or 'Keep Running' dialog to appear (or 'kill $(pidof 
kwrite)' in konsole)

   Any ideas??
