Public bug reported:

Since upgrading Kubuntu from 12.10 to 13.04, plasma-desktop has crashed repeatedly.  I have a few crashes here or there (every week or 2) in 12.10 (especially when using the comics widget), but since upgrading, it crashes whenever I:
   - switch application windows
   - switch desktops
   - change tabs in firefox
   - access any desktop widget

I have removed as many of the desktop widgets that I can to eliminate them.  I still have:
   - A standard panel
      -- KDE Application Launcher
      -- Show Desktop
      -- Task Manager
      -- Pager
      -- System Tray
      -- Digital Clock
   - Twitter 

I have NOT been able to fill out an automated crash report, as the
desktop crashes and restarts when I try an open the crash reporter.  I
can force a crash every time by trying to add/remove/modify any widget.

I have run plasma-desktop from terminal and this is the output I get
when it crashes:

   KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/bin/plasma-desktop from kdeinit
   sock_file=/home/rwilburn/.kde/socket-rwilburn-pc/kdeinit4__0
   KCrash: Application 'plasma-desktop' crashing...
   KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/drkonqi from kdeinit
   sock_file=/home/rwilburn/.kde/socket-rwilburn-pc/kdeinit4__0

The full terminal output is uploaded as the attachment "terminalOutput.txt".  
kdm.log is empty
apport.log is attached

I have never been able to get the debugging symbols for plasma-desktop
to install.  Everytime I try to do it via the crash handler, it says
they install, then sends me back to saying I need to install them
(repeat in endless loop).  If someone can tell me the package name and
repository, I will install them and try to run the crash handler again.

If there is anything else I can provide, please let me know.
