** Description changed:

  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
+    - 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 
+    - 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

  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.
