[kdepim-users] kontact konstantly krashing

After a long period of flawless operation, kontact started crashing 

Despite repeated removes, purges and (re)installs; renaming and deleting 
"rc's" and "ics's";  and, finally in desperation upgrading ubuntu the 
problem continues.

The following is the latest krash output:

Can someone please tell me whether my problem is that there is a bug 
within kontact that I should be reporting or if one (or perhaps more) of 
"my" files is corrupted.  And if the latter how I would go about 
correcting the problem.

I REALLY want to continue using kontact and, will re-key all the data if 
I have to.  But I really would like to know that I won't be facing this 
kontinual krashing yet again.

Thanks very much for your help
