SIGBUS and SIGSEGV are two different signals supported in both platforms. 
They have slightly different meanings, but I can never remember which is 
which. One is access to invalid memory and the other is invalid access to 
valid memory.

In any case, that's not the problem here. The problem is that you're using 
aRts, which is completely unmaintained. It went unmaintained over 4 years 

I suggest you upgrade to KDE 4.
