Did this progress? I got yet feedback by 2 guys using 4.4.3 that plasma 
crashes reproducable at the startup (very bad first impression) for them and 
myself was able to reproduce it till ~2 weeks ago and it's gone since I did 
apply the patches from qt-copy...

I _assume_ (not tested cause I miss time atm but based on the backtraces I 
saw) that one of the following patches does fix that issue;
0254-fix-qgraphicsproxywidget-deletion-crash.diff (Will be included in 4.4.4)
0260-fix-qgraphicswidget-deletionclearFocus.diff (Will be included in 4.4.4)
