Only if you compiled KDE yourself with full debugging information. If 
the backtrace contains a lot of "(no debugging symbols found)..." and 
you don't know how you provoked the crash then don't bother to submit a 
bug report since we won't be able to fix a bug with such little 

Currently there seems to be a problem in khtml which is used by KMail to 
render HTML messages. If the backtrace you got contains something like 
#6 0x40199392 in khtml::Loader::servePendingRequests () 
 from /usr/lib/libkhtml.so.4 
then you are just another victim of the same bug. Disabling HTML 
rendering should prevent this problem.
