curious: on an affected system, if you delete 

	`kde4-config --localprefix`/cache-freedom/ksycoca4* 

do the crashes go away?

possible culprit commits:


neither are super recent, but they both touch the relevant code. there was one 
change to kmimetype by dfaure but it is not implicated by the backtraces nor 
can i see how it would be (it added a required method, did not change existing 
code paths and definitely not the ksycoca code underneath it)
