you.  The simple explanation is that you run the debugger, and it runs
KMyMoney.  If it has the right information (source code and debugging symbols
compiled in) then you can watch how it runs in the source code, and can set
breakpoints (places it just stops for further instructions instead of just
going on.)  It can be very useful for a developer, as you can also examine the
value of variables, so if you know where it blows up, you can set a breakpoint
a few lines earlier, or before it calls that function, and explore the state of
things right before the problem.  Unfortunately, it is not something to learn

One thing I just thought of - can you reinstall an earlier  version, where you
were not getting the crash?  If so, you might be able to save as a file, or
