1. I could do that, but I think it would be quicker and more efficient if someone
    from the list here could set up a test on bugstest.kde.org and reproduce the
    problem in Linux, as you originally suggested.  The bug would probably be
    reproducible in KF5, with Hrvoje's patch, if developers are really allergic to
    KDE 4… :-)  Note that to change database names, you have to edit Dr K source
    and re-compile, so then we could easily insert further logs and patches as
    the investigation progresses.  In my experience, getting users to do that kind
    of stuff is unreliable and time consuming, and anyway we surely do not want
    false or redundant crash reports going into the live Bugzilla database.

2. Should I attach the compressed log, which I sent you, to an email on this list?
    It is 11-12 Kb of bzip2.  There are lots of other strange messages in it, besides
    the ones about cookies, also some warnings I cannot interprete.

Bang goes that hypothesis(?), I think this is going to be a hard one to crack...

Cheers, Ian W.
