It is the wrong fix, and doesn't actually fix the issue, just makes it less 
likely to crash. the cause is a destruction order issue when the focus is on 
the kate part, due to broken code in kate: 

--- kate/part/kateview.cpp      (revision 583159)
+++ kate/part/kateview.cpp      (working copy)

   m_doc->removeView( this );

-  delete m_viewInternal;
-  delete m_codeCompletion;
+  // its a QObject. don't double-delete
+  //delete m_viewInternal;
+  //delete m_codeCompletion;

   delete m_renderer;
+  m_renderer = 0;

   delete m_config;
+  m_config = 0;
   KateFactory::self()->deregisterView (this);

I've added this patch to the kate package in opensuse which should fix the 
issue. we haven't received crash reports since then.
