Couldn't get a backtrace, even after re-installing libraries with -ggdb.

So instead I upgraded to Qt 5.9.1, which I was extremely reluctant to 
do; on Gentoo, the Qt 5.9 packages are marked with:

   "Guaranteed to break your system horribly or your money back."

The Kate crashes went away though. Now waiting for my disk to be 
formatted or my house catching fire...
