The crash about XCF is a redondant problem, due to changes in XCF format.

The XCF image loader is delegate to KDE frameworks which provide the
relevant plugin.

If i remember, the XCF is add in database parser by default. In Setup mime
type, you can remove XCF extension to add "-xcf" to the image format field.
Look in widgets tooltips for details or in documentation :
