           Summary: konsole crashes on invalid KeyBindings
           Product: konsole
           Version: 2.2
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: crash
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: rui.m.malheiro at gmail.com

Version:           2.2 (using 4.1.96 (KDE 4.1.96 (KDE 4.2 RC1)), Kubuntu
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.27-11-generic

After upgrade from KDE 4.1.3 to KDE 4.2RC1 konsole crashes when opening a
session that was configured to use vt420pc keybindings, (which seem to have
been dropped for 4.2). Expected behavior would be to issue a message and maybe
drop back to default keybinding or allow the user to select a new file.

Edit the offending profile, go to the [Keyboard] section and replace the
invalid KeyBindings with a valid one or delete it to use the default. Or you
can recreate the missing profile.

Backtrace and logs:
I don't have a useful backtrace, only the following standard error output:

rmm at vincent:/media/home/rmm/Documents$ konsole --profile tsm00
QFSFileEngine::open: No file name specified
konsole(24711) Konsole::KeyboardTranslatorManager::findTranslator: Unable to
load translator "vt420pc" 
konsole(24711): Attempt to use QAction "change-profile" with KXMLGUIFactory! 
<unknown program name>(24710)/: Communication problem with  "konsole" , it
probably crashed. 
Error message was:  "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply" : " "Message did not
receive a reply (timeout by message bus)" " 

rmm at vincent:/media/home/rmm/Documents$ KCrash: Application 'konsole'

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a konsole profile and enter an invalid file for the KeyBindings on
the [Keyboard] section (eg: KeyBindings=badkey)
2. Start konsole with the new profile (eg: konsole --profile crashtest)
