Factory and 13.2 with konqueror

A brief note on konqueror.

It is crashing badly for me on opensuse factory and on opensuse 13.2-RC1.

It seems that there is some kind of conflict between konqueror and the other desktops (Gnome, XFCE and LXDE) that I usually install.  If I install only KDE, then konqueror works well.  But if I also install Gnome, XFCE and LXDE, then konqueror crashes on many sites.

If I switch konqueror to use the KHTML engine instead of the WebKit engine, then it is stable.  But I’m not a fan of KHTML, so I prefer it with WebKit.

When 13.2 final is released, I guess I will install only KDE on my main desktop, so that I can have a stable konqueror.  I’ll continue to install the other desktops (in addition to KDE) on my laptop and backup systems.

This problem has been reported as bug 901006.
