strange crashes on PARISC/HPPA

I see strange crashes at the end of each KDE application (e.g. konsole, kwrite, ...) with KDE_3_2_BRANCH on the big-endian HPPA platform (self-compiled from CVS sources from yesterday) when quitting the application (closing the main window).

A backtrace in gdb with the environment variable KDE_DEBUG=1 shows the following:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x41c05090 in free () from /lib/

(gdb) bt

#8  0x000107a4 in _start () at ../sysdeps/hppa/elf/start.S:67

So, the crash seems to happen when the libqt does some cleanups ?

Maybe someone here has an idea what could cause those crashes or
what I can do to find the root of the problem ?
