amaroK crashing when editing tags

  I have a problem with amaroK stability. It crashes often, especially when I
try to edit the tags of mp3 tracks. There are several kinds of the crash:
  1) It just hangs. UI is frozen. If it plays during the crash, it continues
     to play until all the current track is played. It then doesn't start to
     play the next track. It must be killed.
  2) It crashes, displaying its own nice crash dialog (in current CVS version,
     formerly it was a standard DrKonqui). I'm very sorry but I can't supply
     a valid backtrace, because all my KDE is currently compiled without debug
     symbols and even with amarok compiled with debugging, the backtrace
     is obviously unusable.
  3) It crashes, terminates and nothing is displayed. It simply disappears.
  All these crashes are there for a long time, I'm updating amaroK on a regular
basis and waiting for a fix but still no luck. It can crash updating just one
track. In a batch update (multiple tracks selected) the crash is almost sure.
  It's cvs HEAD running on top of KDE_3_3_BRANCH KDE. kdesupport (taglib) is
also HEAD. 
  Is anybody able to reproduce this crash and eventually supply its backtrace ?
