Of course that would be fine with me!

That could be fixed by manually adding an association (in kde from
Configure Konqueror -> File Associations, then select application and
you should find an entry for x-kig).  All the association information
is perhaps contained in /usr/share/mimelnk/application/x-kig.desktop
(uhm, there is also a "X-KDE-AutoEmbed=false" which looks interesting)
which should be part of the kig package.

Please be more specific, which example are you trying?  Does kig crash also
with the simplest example?  In case of crash the most important information
is the "assertion failure" that sometimes appear on the terminal from which
you run kig.
In principle your version of kig (0.9.0) is not very old, however the examples 
contained in my page where obtained with the development version.  I tested
them with the kig version shipped with kde 3.5 (kig version 0.10.5) and they
work with the exception of the heptagonal hyperbolic tessellation which makes
use of features not present in that version of kig.
Since I spend a lot of effort in trying to maintain backword compatibility
in kig I am interested in knowing if some recent kig file does not work with
older kig versions (of course this cannot be avoided completely).
