I go a bug report (#54594) that KPovModeler crashes on startup. I searched the 
message archive and found a similar crash report for noatun and kaboodle 

I don't think that the program is buggy, there are only some simple new calls 
until the program crashes. AND: If I preview a kpm scene in the konqueror, 
the part loads correctly. Maybe the problem is already known or you have an 

I have two users that have this problem, one of them solved the crash by 
linking the whole program into the executeable and not using the part lib.

The users system:
Debian "testing", 2.4.19 
KDE 3.1.0, compiled fron sources
Qt 3.1.1
gcc 3.21

Here is the backtrace:

After recompiling qt with debug information, he got this useless backtrace:
