Kicker crashing on exit when KMix Panelapplet is running

I am getting stuck on bug report 107474 ( ).
The crash happens from time to time on my machine as well, but as it only happens on logging out from KDE I have no way to cleanly reproduce it.

My guess is, that it is some timing issue, as the KMix Panelapplet is potentially quite slow on exit:
It currently writes back all configuration items, which often takes several seconds for writing.

Should I reassign the bug to Kicker?
Does anybody have an idea what is going wrong in PanelKMenu::~PanelKMenu ()  ?

The interesting part of the Kicker backtrace is this one:
