does that mean "all of the time", or only "very often"?

Yes, typically only the last ~100 lines are of interest. In this case, it's 
only the very last line. Unfortunately, that means, the debug log simply 
doesn't show what's the problem.

I don't really have an idea, what could be the problem. I guess it is related 
to some local settings. Two things to test:

1) Try the File->Open dialog in kwrite or kate. Does that work?
2) Close RKWard, rename ~/.kde/share/config/rkwardrc , start RKWard, and try 

*If* 2) fixes the problem, you could try to track down which setting in the 
configuration was causing trouble. I.e. open the renamed rkwardrc in a text 
editor, modify, save as ~/.kde/share/config/rkwardrc , start RKWard and test 
whether the issue occurs. My guesses would be that the sections "[KFileDialog 
Settings]", "[Recent Dirs]", or "[Recent Files]" could be the problem, so 
simply try removing those, one at a time.
