Evidently I cannot reproduce it, and since you didn't build Kate and/or KTextEditor with debug info (configure.optflags=-g) I can only guess what goes wrong in TabSwitcherPluginView::unregisterDocument()…

well, I have no idea what happened before the crash. Perhaps it makes sense to install Kate using the -g flag, you are right!

You did? OK. :)

OK, I guess I’ll have to see what I get around to do next time I decide to give all these ports a new try.

Indeed, that was it. Dolphin then shows its icons if I run it from the command line! :)

When I tell it to edit a file though this error is shown:

	KDEInit could not launch 'kate5'

So, it can’t find kate5 properly on MacPorts as of now.

I didn’t have the this port installed, but it doesn’t seem to be needed anyways.

What do you mean by putting finally in quotes? O;-)

OK, let me know once you’ve updated to the latest KF5 version.
