Mmmm never mind, I've just found that it crashes with a message in 
terminal: "undefined symbol XXXX in some kdiff3 library ..." (I did not 
notice that kdiff3 had installed a konqueror plugin ...)
But I already saw that upgrading tdelibs from 3.5.13 to 3.5.13-sru 
caused unresolved symbol in kpowersave, and even some in tdebase. I 
think this is due to some "q"=>"tq" renaming or vice-versa.

This leads me to the conclusion that, for packagers, the 3.5.13 => 
3.5.13-sru upgrade won't be a "small update".
I think that all packages, including applications, should be rebuilt to 
avoid such issues. TDE looks like a major upgrade after all 
(from an end-user point of view, who will need to upgrade every TDE
