** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace
  Plasma crashed when I moving plasmoid "File Watcher"
  I think that is qt-language-selector problem, because if language is English - no crashes.
  KUbuntu 8.10 alpha6 with all updates.

+ *Below added by Jonathan Thomas*
+  Stable Release Update (SRU) infos:
+  -Impact: Anybody who tries to configure the file watcher (or twitter) plasmoid via the "configure" button on the front of the plasmoid will recieve a crash next time they mouse over or click on the plasmoid after configuration.
+  -Addressed by: This bug has been addressed by adding a Qt-copy patch set for release in Qt 4.4.4, which properly clears focus, preventing the crash
+  -Testcase: Install kdebase-workspace and kdeplasma-addons. Add the file watcher plasmoid to the desktop. Configure the plasmoid by clicking the configure button in the middle of the currently-blank plasmoid and select a file for it to watch. Once you press ok on the settings dialog, mouse over or click the plasmoid, and plasma should crash.
+  -Patch/regression potential: The patch is extremely small, set for release with Qt 4.4.4, and it included in KDE's Qt-copy, making the regression potential for this very small. In my testing I have not noticed regressions.
