I may be barking up the wrong tree here but I seem to remember that on 
KDE using the ARTS server caused a crash like this so it may be a sound 
server issue.  You could try starting it from the command line which 
might give you some info as to what's causing the problem.  Do that and 
then post the output here and maybe someone brighter than me will be 
able to tell you what it all means.

I've generally had better luck using the .bin rather than a distribution 

Also, as an mp3 player (rather than as a radio), I've always found 
Audacious, XMMS or Amarok more user friendly.
